1.4.5 SAGS and TWIGS

The work of the clusters at the field level involves a Strategic Advisory Group (SAG) and Technical Working Groups (TWIGs).

A SAG is comprised of cluster members and determines the overall strategic direction for cluster response to an emergency.

A TWIG is an ad hoc sub-group established from the cluster participants to work on key technical issues, such as formulating relevant technical standards, and promoting and monitoring compliance with sector standards.
