· Joint planning, where possible, with concerned partners for immediate critical interventions,
· Effective coordination;
· Linking of initial planning, implementation and policy decisions to longer-term development;
· Strategic linkages to sanitation, nutrition, health, shelter and education;
· Participation of target populations in decision making and actions; and,
· Periodic monitoring and analysis for further action.
