ECB Agencies meet Global Food Security Cluster deployment in Niger and Burkina Faso
Published on 20 March 2012
The global Food Security Cluster (FSC), which aims to improve food security responses in humanitarian crisis situations, is currently deployed in Niger as part of a scoping mission in West Africa. The mission also includes deployments to Burkina Faso, Chad and Mali.
The Niger deployment takes place 17–21 March 2012 with representatives meeting with ECB agencies while in Niamey.
There are two key purposes to the mission:
- To map out the various coordination structures that exist in-country and across the region
- To have discussions on the recent UN Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) initiative Accountability to Affected Populations (AAP).
The FSC will also meet with Standing Team members in Niger and Burkina Faso to learn more about ECB and agency accountability practice.
