Strategic response planning guidance

The strategic response plan articulates the shared vision of how to respond to the affected population’s assessed and expressed needs. The strategic response plan (SRP) is a management tool for response and supports decision-making by the humanitarian country team. It has two interlinked components: a country or context strategy, with strategic objectives and indicators; and cluster plans, with objectives, activities and accompanying projects. Together they detail how the strategy will be implemented and how much funding is required. 

The Guidance is available in both English and French.
