Coordinated assistance and service delivery
Coordinated assistance and service delivery
What is the "elephant" in the room?
Lack of trust between actors
everybody prioritizes other things over coordination.
Competing agendas of organizations vs. best interest of beneficiaries
Missing coordination between NGOs
Need of centralized data system and clear roles
Concern for sustainability of organizations
Lack of appreciation on the importance of data management.
Different internal strategies make difficult a standard or a common strategy
Everybody wants coordination, but nobody wants to be coordinated
Senior management, particularly in the UN and large NGOs does not understand nor embrace a culture of 'sharing, inclusion and progress'
the obstacles are varying from organization and another based on its position of humanitarians work nature.
UN global leadership
SCOPE vs ASSIST Tug of War
Why do you think it is important?
Efficiency of resources
reach to more people with limited resources
ensure proper effective service delivery according to the needs
standardise type of assistance
Better coverage for humanitarian needs
Efficiency in using resources instead of wasting time, efforts and other resources
Avoiding waste of effort and money
I also believe this would also achieve the economy of scale for the UN agencies.
Because it decreases duplication and allows the organization and the cluster to reach out to more beneficiaries.
As UN/international Org. working in the same country its so important to achieve good and proper coordination and avoid duplication in services in the area.
the optimum planning results from correct information sharing.
Complementarity of actors
Complementarity through interdependence among stakeholders instead of competition among actors
Full trusted delivery
Easy data coordination between NGOs, good business plan
Services integration between organizations to targeted communities.
Increased impact for beneficiaries
Deeper impact in people's lives
Because our aim is to provide quality service for the right people in the right location.
because its better for our beneficiaries
Because it make better assistance to IDPs Refugees around KRI.
Well, My organization is a Humanitarian Aid that Likes to Helps IDPs and Refugees inn the best way that Exist.
Important as to avoid overlaps and duplication It heightens quality assurance in our work and speed up our response time, giving the beneficiary a better service. It also saves lives, and boost the overall impact, effectiveness and efficiency of our work
To increase the coverage of target communities’ requirements.
Accountability to donors
This has been a long outstanding agenda of the donor community.
We need to be accountable to our donors
It is stipulated in the core humanitarian standards and as humanitarian organizations we are bound to respect these standards, respects the rights and dignity of beneficiaries
Why are we not further advanced?
Lack of trust & communication
I think organizations can not trust each other and don't share the data on time to each other.
Lack in communication between our management
Lack of communication
There is no Coordination between the Organization
because of the corruption.
Lack of process & standards
No clear coordination streamline
No existing unified database and process, data inefficiencies and lack of adequate technology
No data sharing coordination between NGOs. There is no online data sharing system which should be located in the field
I think there is Coordination for assistance but it needed to be better and one of the ways to develop the Coordinated assistance is more training and more Seminars.
Lack of knowlege
I believe UN agencies polices and regulations should be harmonized
Lack of incentives
There is no incentive for individual organizations to coordinate more and there might be lack of the usage of technology in coordination
tendency to work in silos only focusing on their own approach and strategies because it's easier to work with what you already know.
competition for resources
Because of the different agendas and objectives
Arrogance and ignorance
The UNHCR and WFP battle for cash globally
Competition over limited resources
Because organizations compete for funds and need to show donors that they are an added value to keep the funding coming in. It is not bad willing as we all have in mind to assist the people in need.
agencies are competing among themselves to secure funds for the programs
Competition of scarce resources (funding)
Other more urgent priorities
Seeking to serve the reachable communities
Data management is a tedious job and most service provision especially in an emergency response is tedious enough already.
Lack of time, challenges in the field, own internal or donor requirements.
