Programme Quality & Cross-cutting Issues

For the global Food Security Cluster (gFSC), programme quality is the process of ensuring that humanitarian response integrates standards, indicators and cross cutting issues throughout the project cycle to ensure that the services provided have the ultimate goal of (an) increased (positive) impact for all vulnerable human beings within the affected populations.

This section includes tools and guidance on programme quality and cross-cutting issues, including Accountability to Affected Populations and Preventing Sexual Abuse and Exploitation; Gender and Age; Protection; Disability; Diversity; Environment; Cash and Markets; and Resilience.

The gFSC has a Programme Quality Working Group, with its specific webpage.
