2.1.2 Phase 2: Partners, Beneficiaries and Diversion
|Recommended Actions||Minimum Questions|
|Review tensions in area and deepen conflict analysis||• Is it getting better, worse or staying the same?
• Are the triggers or causes linked to aid?
|Check to see how partners and staff are viewed by beneficiary population||• Are the partners perceived as neutral, impartial and driven by the humanitarian imperative by the local population?
• Can we verify if they are abiding by code of conduct?
|Check who is selecting beneficiaries to ensure the body is representative and legitimate||• Does the body represent the diversity of the local population and target population?
• Is it respected and viewed as transparent?
|Check that the selection criteria and process is sensitive to the conflict||• Have the criteria favoured one group more than another, and does this overlap with conflict divisions?
• Can non-beneficiaries complain?
|Check the distribution method has been assessed for conflict and GBV risks?||• Will the distribution method expose beneficiaries especially women to risk of attack, robbery, discrimination or abuse?|
|Brainstorm ways to prevent aid diversion, document.||• How might our aid end up in the control of armed groups?
• How can we limit this risk?
|Link and share information with peer agencies||• Are we engaging in protection cluster/ host community working groups?|
