IASC Principals Meeting Background Document: Applying the IASC Transformative Agenda in Level 3 Emergencies, 17 April 2012

What is Transformative about the Transformative Agenda in a Level 3 Response?

Experience has shown that decisions made in the immediate aftermath of a large-scale sudden-onset emergency are critical in determining the effectiveness of a humanitarian response. The Transformative Agenda provides a mechanism to now ensure that these decisions and actions occur in a timely and efficient manner. IASC organizations have committed to a package of actions which strengthen collective readiness to respond to the next large-scale sudden-onset emergency, while recognizing the complementarity of humanitarian systems.
