Peer Agency Review of Emergency
Roster Financing

Canada 2013

GEG deployed a two-person team to undertake a peer review as how best to establish an expanded, financially viable and sustainable CARE Rapid Response Team.

Background: In June 2012, CARE International (CI) adopted a new humanitarian strategy for 2013-2020. This commits CI to becoming “a leading humanitarian agency having lasting impacts on the needs of poor women, men, boys and girls affected by humanitarian crisis and known for our particular ability to reach and empower women and girls in emergencies” by 2020. In the new humanitarian strategy, CI commits to increasing its surge capacity and to ensuring the financial viability and sustainability of these systems (including related cost-recovery systems).

Requirement: A peer review that examined CARE’s peers’ emergency response teams, would undertake an in-depth analysis of the various financing and cost recovery models (for peer agencies in comparison to CARE Canada’s deployable team cost recovery experience), identify lessons and best practices and formulate specific recommendations for CARE as it increases its overall standing team capacity.

GEG Contribution: A two-person GEG team (humanitarian and human resources specialist as team lead and a humanitarian finance specialist) to undertake a peer review as to how best to establish an expanded, financially viable and sustainable CARE Rapid Response Team. The team used a mixed methods approach to present findings, conclusion and actionable recommendations that were subsequently implemented by CARE.
