Summary of key actions

The following table summarises the key actions that should be taken in the first 72 hours following a sudden onset disaster, or following a recognised spike (as assessed by the member/country programme and/or IHART) in a slow onset disaster. A fuller description of each activity is included in the text below. The RASCI matrix sets out in detail the roles that individuals and departments across the organisation are expected to play, and where accountability lies for each activity. The key point to remember is that during disasters, it cannot be ‘business as usual’ – different ways of working and different priorities will be needed.

In case of red and orange alert level emergencies, the ActionAid standard operating procedure (SOP) expects members/country programmes to respond. However, in yellow alert level emergencies, members/country programmes are advised to respond. This section defines expectations of IHART in such circumstances.

Fundraising

Reallocate internal funds and access national contingency funds

Who does this: member/country programme, with support of Country Co-ordination and International Finance

Fundraising in emergencies, particularly for smaller scale and slow onset disasters, can be a challenge and often the fastest and most appropriate source of funding for disaster response is at the national level. In most cases, the member/country programme is expected to make efforts to access national level funds before seeking funding support from the wider ActionAid federation or global donors.

Fundraising

Submit proposals to institutional donors, trusts and major donors

Who does this: member/country programme and fundraising affiliates, with support of International Fundraising and IHART

Depending on the scale of the emergency, continuing needs of those affected and the amount of funds we have been able to mobilise within the first six months, there may be a need for continued fundraising. At this stage, the most likely available sources of funding are institutional donors, trusts and major donors – the majority of which are accessed not directly by the disaster-affected country but through fundraising affiliates who ‘own’ the relationship with specific donors.

Emergency Preparedness Plans

National and LRP level preparedness plans

People living in poverty and exclusion are constantly vulnerable to disasters, and poverty reduction efforts are incomplete without reducing this vulnerability. All ActionAid members in countries vulnerable to disasters (countries assessed in IHART’s analysis as high risk in terms of likelihood and impact of natural disasters and/or conflict) are therefore expected to have disaster preparedness plans in place.

The purpose of a preparedness plan is to make sure that communities, partners and ActionAid can develop the necessary skills, resources, information, systems and structures to effectively prepare for disasters, to reduce their impact and respond more efficiently. It should guide the process of preparing for disasters and should also provide guidance on what the organisation will do when a disaster happens.
