Presentation Guide for International Organizations involved in Complex Emergencies

This short guide is intended to help representatives from international organizations make concise presentations of their organization’s role in complex emergencies, and their perspective on coordination of these efforts with other humanitarian organizations. The guidelines below should provide a relevant framework for analysis of any organization involved with humanitarian interventions in complex emergencies. It is designed to prompt focused answers that can be used to prepare a short presentation of 5 to 10 minutes in length. While respondents should not become slaves to this outline, adherence in spirit will facilitate comparative analysis of different organizational approaches.

Outline Questionnaire

1.

What is the background of your organization? How long has it been operational in field-level humanitarian intervention?

Does your organizational mandate limit your services to specific groups such as refugees, women, children, or unaccompanied minors? Does this mandate in any way facilitate or act as a barrier against coordination?



3.

In what complex emergencies situations has your organization been involved? In what capacity?



4.

In what ways have your organizational mandate and policy towards coordination affected your organization’s activities in complex emergencies?



5.

What is your organization’s primary mechanism for coordination of its activities with other international humanitarian organizations?
