Implementing Early Recovery

Implementing Early Recovery as a foundation for building resilience in humanitarian settings

UNDP, Cluster lead, Cluster Working Groupe on Early Recovery, 1 November 2013



Early recovery is a vital element of an effective humanitarian response. It is an integrated, inclusive and coordinated approach to gradually turn the dividends of humanitarian action into sustainable crisis recovery, resilience building and development opportunities.

The IASC Principals requested UNDP, as Chair of the Cluster Working Group on Early Recovery (CWGER), to identify recommendations to strengthen early recovery as an integral part of humanitarian response.

The following recommendations were endorsed by the IASC Principals in 2013 after a broad consultation process.
