Accountability to affected populations (AAP)

The Collective Accountability to Affected People (AAP) Framework (the Framework) is a tool developed by the IASC to enable Resident/Humanitarian Coordinators (RC/HCs), Humanitarian Country Teams (HCTs) and UN Country Teams (UNCTs) to prioritize actions to strengthen response-wide AAP. The Framework outlines six outcomes and related actions to seek out, hear and act upon the voices and priorities of affected communities. It is a tool to enable responsive and people-centred humanitarian action in support of local and national systems. The Framework promotes a coordinated approach to community engagement and participation, emphasising inclusion of affected people in decision making, implementation and evaluation in all phases of the response.
