This session looked at the role of the Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) coordination structure – the Humanitarian Coordination Teams, Inter-cluster coordination, and Clusters – and asked how successful the system has been over the last decade. An expert panel considered what makes coordination work, what stands in the way, and what the future holds for these structures of coordination.
