Cluster update: IASC Early Recovery

The speaker discussed the role of the Early Recovery Cluster in the context of humanitarian response. He also noted the importance of establishing an Early Recovery Network at country level, to ensure links between the various clusters.

The discussion that followed focused on the ways in which early recovery fits into the field arrangements of the clusters, the importance of coordination between clusters and cluster members, and the fact that local governments should always be included in the the early recovery process in order that it be more functional and sustainable.
