The Global Cluster for Early Recovery (GCER) leads global and interagency efforts to establish and maintain standards and policy, build response capacity and operational support. The Global Cluster for Early Recovery has ensured appropriate integration of early recovery in updated IASC guidance, including on the Humanitarian Programme Cycle and Cluster Coordination.

The GCER supported the mainstreaming and integration of the early recovery approach at the Country Level through the provision of strategic and coordination support to the Humanitarian Coordinators (HCs), Resident Coordinators (RCs), Humanitarian Country Teams (HCTs) and Cluster Lead Agencies (CLAs).
