Disaster Risk Reduction & Contingency Planning
This report summarises the second phase of the Inter-Agency Standing Committee’s Inter-Agency Real-Time Evaluation of the response to the Earthquake, twenty months after the disaster event. Given the scale of the disaster and subsequent humanitarian response, the Inter‐Agency Standing Committee (IASC) launched a multiphase exercise to inform decision makers at national and headquarters levels, to draw lessons and allow corrections to be made where necessary. The Humanitarian Country Team (HCT) is intended to be the most immediate user of the feedback and recommendations of the evaluation.

The following guidelines seek to provide practical guidance for Humanitarian Country Teams, composed of UN Agencies and other International Organizations, the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement1 and NGO representatives, who are embarking on a process of inter-agency contingency planning in order to increase their level of preparedness and enhance their ability to respond to emergencies.
Within a broader framework of emergency preparedness, inter-agency contingency planning is essential to ensure that humanitarian agencies/organizations are as ready as they can be to manage future uncertainty by developing responses to natural disasters, conflicts and other crises. Inter-agency contingency planning should also be mindful of and linked with other initiatives on disaster prevention, risk reduction and early recovery.
