Planning Bridge Tool
This tool is a complement to Response Planning and Monitoring (RPM) and the Project Module (PM). Its purpose is to give a clearer picture of the projects that partners are drafting in the Project Module, so that they can plan according to needs, and as part of that, arrange various cluster plans to cover the needs as best as possible, especially the most severe needs. Using new technologies such as Power BI, the tool allows for more visibility and real time communication so that clusters can see what their partners are planning (and vice versa), and ensure the total outputs and total people targeted add up.

Response Monitoring Analysis (RMA) Tool
The RMA is a customizable solution that pulls information on Needs, Planning, Monitoring, and Funding from other HPC tools and links it together in a way that allows country teams to easily visualize response progress at both the cluster and inter-cluster level. This enhanced oversight gives cluster coordinators the ability to better track progress by severity level, target population, and geographical locations.

This is a recorded PowerPoint presentation, introducing the basic concepts of response monitoring.
It is recommended as an introduction for OCHA staff working on monitoring.

Cette présentation PowerPoint enregistrée introduit les concepts de base du suivi de la réponse.
Elle est recommandée comme introduction pour le personnel OCHA travaillant sur le suivi.

This guidance supplements the Humanitarian Programme Cycle (HPC) Step by Step Guide on humanitarian response planning steps. It provides definitions, structured approaches and tools to facilitate response analysis and prioritization, formulation of strategic and specific objectives, and estimation of the number of people targeted in the Humanitarian Response Plan.

Joint Analysis > Prioritizing and informing decisions

An AAR is a structured discussion focusing on drawing learning from an event/process. It looks at the divergence between the planned and the actual, and then identifies what went well or ill. The aim of an after-action review is to improve performance in the future by reflecting on the work of a group and identifying strengths, weaknesses, and areas for improvement. Simplicity is at the heart of the AAR, offering considerable flexibility on how it is applied. The tool is centered on bringing the relevant group together and the following themes:


What was expected or supposed to happen?
What actually occurred?
What did and did not go well and why?
What can be improved and how?

This document is consolidated by OCHA on behalf of the Humanitarian Country Team and partners. The Humanitarian Response Plan is a presentation of the coordinated, strategic response devised by humanitarian agencies in order to meet the acute needs of people affected by the crisis. It is based on, and responds to, evidence of needs described in the Humanitarian Needs Overview.

This guidance document for the Joint Intersectoral Analysis Framework (herein ‘The JIAF 1.1 guidance’) is designed to assist country teams in conducting intersectoral analysis when preparing Humanitarian Needs Overviews (HNOs) and subsequent Humanitarian Response Plans (HRPs) as part of the 2023 Humanitarian Programme Cycle (HPC).
