In order to identify existing work and solidify common coordination challenges for humanitarians, ALNAP held two roundtables: one in Geneva (5 October 2015) and another one in Nairobi (12 October 2015). These brought together expertise from within the Shelter, WASH and Nutrition Clusters as well as colleagues from ALNAP Member organisations. Over 115 individuals participated in the roundtable sessions.

Based on themes identified in our recent work on coordination, ALNAP identified five common coordination challenges to explore in these roundtables: sub-national coordination, the role of national actors including government and national NGOs, trust, information management and decision-making/roles/responsibilities.

ALNAP shared findings from our cluster research on each topic, and then participants were asked to discuss their own experiences around these challenges, identify any existing work to address coordination in these areas, and develop recommendations for improvement.
