remedy, mitigate or avert direct loss of life, physical and
psychological harm or threats to a population or major
portion thereof and/or protect their dignity

Building a consolidated appeal
• The Common Humanitarian Action Plan
– Comprises the common elements of a consolidated appeal,
including contextual and needs analysis, scenarios, boundaries
and scope of action, strategic objectives, project selection and
prioritisation criteria
• The cluster response plans
– Comprise objectives that operationalise one or more of the
strategic objectives, and include their own objectives, activities,
outcomes, indicators, and monitoring plan
• The projects
– Designed to respond to one or more of the cluster’s objectives,
and must meet the cluster’s and appeal’s selection criteria.

Cluster response plans:
key challenges
 Cluster objectives clearly linked to strategic objectives
 Defining the categories of affected people, the number of
people in need, and the targeted beneficiaries
 MAPPING: CAP and non-CAP actors and activities
