The Humanitarian Cluster approach was adopted by the IASC as a key strategy to address the gaps in humanitarian response. The aim of the cluster approach at the global level is to strengthen system-wide preparedness and co-ordination of technical capacity to respond to humanitarian emergencies by ensuring that there is predictable leadership and accountability in all the main sectors or areas of humanitarian response. Similarly, at the country level the aim is to strengthen humanitarian response by demanding high standards of predictability, accountability and partnership in all sectors or areas of activity. The success of the cluster approach will be judged in terms of the impact it has on improving the humanitarian response to those affected by crises. In September 2005, IASC Principals agreed to designate global cluster lead agencies in critical programme and operational areas, and also agreed that the ‘cluster approach’ should be applied at the country level. Country: At the country level, the aim of the Cluster is to ensure a more coherent and effective response by mobilizing groups of agencies, organizations and NGOs to respond in a strategic manner across all key sectors or areas of activity. The Humanitarian Coordinator – with the support of OCHA – retains responsibility for ensuring the adequacy, coherence and effectiveness of the overall humanitarian response and is accountable to the Emergency Relief Coordinator.
UNICEF as a Cluster agency for WASH, is working on plans to strengthen State level Coordination architects for the WASH Cluster and also to ensure that Area Based Coordination (ABC) mechanism are established to enhance Cluster’s coordination capacities, ensure there is strengthened bottom-up coordination approach and improved information/communication sharing among others. In view of this approach and in partnership with UNICEF, Alight is looking for a qualified candidate to fill the position of WASH Cluster State Level Coordinator for Jubaland State.

Supporting WASH service delivery
