ABOUT THE LOGISTIC CLUSTER

To address these issues the UN Emergency Response Coordinator, through OCHA, introduced an Agenda for Reform in September 2005. The reform was targeted to improve partnership between humanitarian actors and therefore enhance the overall response to emergencies, and was rapidly developed along three key axes, known as the three pillars of the reform: (1) Development of clusters at global and country levels. (2) Strengthening of the role of the Humanitarian Coordinator at field level. (3) Modification to key aspects of the funding mechanisms.
