Country-level Cluster Terms and Definitions

The Global Cluster Coordination Group (GCCG) developed this index of terms and definitions to clarify cluster-related coordination structures, agency leadership roles and individual functions. The terms and definitions are based on a review of IASC policy and guidance and experience from the use of the cluster approach since 2005. This document will be reviewed every two years from the date of the GCCG’s endorsement, or sooner at the request of a GCCG member, to take into account operational practice.
