IASC Task Force SAFE Matrix

The Matrix on Agency Roles and Responsibilites for Ensuring a Coordinated, Multi-Sectoral Fuel Strategy in Humanitarian Settings defines the key fuel-related activities that must occur in order to achieve an effective fuel response in new and ongoing humanitarian crises. This Matrix is targeted to field-based actors from a range of response sectors: camp coordination/camp management; emergency shelter; environment/natural resource management; food/nutrition; health; information/education/communication; livelihoods/development/food security; and protection. Its goal is to provide a practical tool for determining the priority activities that must be undertaken in the development of an effective, multi-sectoral fuel strategy, as well as the specific agencies with responsibility for ensuring that these activities are indeed undertaken and those agencies with additional relevant expertise on the topic. This Matrix should be read in conjunction with the Decision Tree Diagram.
