Report on meeting: Accountability to Affected Populations within the Clusters - Where we are and what next?
A small group of participants from across the humanitarian spectrum of UN agencies and NGOs were invited to the meeting to exchange information and experience on what accountability mechanisms and tools exist and how they are used within different clusters. The meeting also discussed ways to promote and enhance accountability to crisis affected populations and to identify the roles of the different actors. Ideas and suggestions arising from the meeting will provide inputs for the upcoming IASC Working Group meeting in April 2010 (NY) as well as feed into the work of the NGOs and Humanitarian Reform Project. This report gives an overview of the presentations and discussions.
