ECB Shelter Accountability Advisor Deployed to Côte d'Ivoire
Published on 19 April 2012
The ECB Project is working with the Shelter Cluster and the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Cluster to support the clusters and their members in improving accountability to affected populations.
Hugh Earp, the ECB Project Shelter Accountability Advisor, hosted by CARE UK, has just spent three weeks in Côte d'Ivoire supporting the humanitarian country team and the Shelter Cluster there.
Hugh's role has been to support and collaborate with many agencies, beyond just the ECB member agencies, including:
- The UN High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR)
- UN OCHA (Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs)
- The Red Cross Movement
- The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC)
- The International Rescue Committee (IRC)
- Solidarités International
- Several local NGOs and others.
Two components of the mission were to:
- Raise awareness and support the improvement of accountability with agencies at the field level which are implementing shelter programs.
- Pilot the new Operational Framework developed by the Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) Task Team on the Cluster Approach (TTCA) Sub-Group on Accountability to Affected Populations.
Workshops were conducted to address both components, and reports from the various aspects of this mission will be available shortly on the ECB Project website.
The Assessment Capacities Project (ACAPS), with support from ECB agencies and other stakeholders, under the overall coordination of the Humanitarian Country Task Team (HCTT), is in the process of organizing a joint needs assessment (JNA) in Bangladesh. The JNA will take place in the three affected districts of Patuakhali, Barguna and Bhola, following the impact of cyclone Mahasen. Read more
