The Nepal Humanitarian Work Plan highlights the need for clear and comprehensive strategic focus for humanitarian action in 2011. Significant issues remain for humanitarian actors in Nepal and the Humanitarian Country Team (HCT) requires a shared strategy. The Humanitarian Work Plan for 2011 is anchored around the needs identified by the Clusters. Central to this effort, is working with the Government of Nepal (GoN) and the maintenance of the Cluster system itself. The HCT needs to be clear about its “evidence-base” and how we define humanitarian or emergency orientated responses. The HCT also needs to continue to push the development community to assume a greater role in helping Nepal address chronic vulnerabilities.
