Relevance

Why is this subject covered?

Cluster staff need to understand the background and principles of their organization, the different forms this organization can take, and their own roles within it.

How does this relate to my day to day tasks?

The FSC TOR and the position TORs define what tasks are actually expected of the CC and IMO.

Food Security Cluster- Architecture

Flexibility

“The worst thing we can do is a take a blue-print approach – people feel overwhelmed with OCHA coming in with a set cluster roll out without any space for negotiation.”

Food Security Cluster

slide11

Food Security Cluster- Architecture

Integration of FS Issues

  • Joint cluster
  • Separate clusters: food, agriculture, food and livelihoods

Leadership

Food Security Cluster- Architecture

Question:

How is cluster co-leadership managed?

  • No one model
  • Co-leadership vs. co-facilitation/co-chair of mtgs.
  • Effective and efficient leadership most important
  • Education Cluster example:
  • Assess presence, capacity, and working relationships
  • Agree upon single, joint, or government lead
  • Agree upon accountability and reporting (HC/RC, HCT, Population)
  • Prepare MoU clearly stating arrangements
  • Address PoLR and roles of CLAs
  • Disseminate details
