From August to December of 2020, READY conducted consultations to examine the coordination and leadership mechanisms emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic response, to better understand how NGOs working in humanitarian settings are engaging in these structures. This report summarizes the findings from these consultations and features case studies of national-level coordination from DRC and Indonesia.
Key themes explored in the report include:
- Coordination and leadership mechanisms emerging for the COVID-19 response
- Opportunities for effective NGO engagement in COVID-19 response coordination mechanisms and lessons to inform NGO readiness for future outbreak response
- The role of COVID-19 coordination mechanisms in advocating for and supporting community-centered response approaches
