the clock collaboration rather than quarterly
they it's uh well it seems to be cremated in i think i mean effort to change my not quite a lot
on this um i actually came from the yeah interaction global uh
interaction for them last week and and d. c. n.
with the mayor was around and um i have interdependent we all are both within
the sector um and then with the private sector and you know globally
um and a big part of that obviously is is around collaboration so x. and
it's interesting to see that that's the gene that we're talking about here
um and i have far we've come from last year which is that you know since someone much
morning about justifying why we should be cashew nuts about well how with that and how we gonna do it together
um i'm gonna uh just gonna pick up on a couple of the points that um my colleagues on
uh on the panel michael panels a mention to do we and and specifically in relation to somalia
and many of which are relevant to any context to operate so i'm not just gonna buy caviar
uh and then maybe talk about some opportunities that um you know i would see going
forward and specifically links to collaboration i'm i'm not talk a lot about the
uh the c. c. d. which uh and which christina into just a as part of my by
or so um the uh i collaborative cash to liberate that form as we called it
is uh and the lines or group of fourteen and euros and how
uh that's um that got together and is looking at how
uh how to what is effective models of collaboration
uh and then how can we ensure that collaboration uh i'm
good collaboration leads to more uh efficient and effective responses
and i was glad that casino brought the efficiency and effectiveness a piece
t. v. as well because i do think it's important you know we we talk about value for money
and you know i think people for the job of thinking about the efficiency piece which is about the cost
and the value uh is something that you know we'll set to focus on i think that's why hopefully
it says that there it's about taking quality programs to scale so it's the quality pieces well
um so the uh and i'm not sure that's so i'm a collaborative castillo reply from does or c. c. d.
um uh you were getting together looking at how can we advance a can a collaboration than sector
for operational uh reasons and ultimately to deliver more for
um verbal populations around the world like um
and that uh i mean i i i just want to pick up into things i mean i think
uh echo mentioned this morning and uh and really you that and also um sort of mastercard around
you know they desire to see humanity in actors come together
i'm collaborate because it's easier from both of those perspectives to deal with
um i kind of harmon i standards a collective um so from posting from
the donor side and a private sector site and that was uh
to me what i heard is a kind of clear request up for
collaboration that would make their job easier on both sides so
i can uh it's reassuring to see that we're all humanity the actors talking about collaboration today
i'm going on to uh just some of the points that were raised to the uh i i run somalia
in two thousand eleven you know as you know we've mentions was um you know was the
biggest cash response over time it was al also uh uh one of the most
um well documents it's uh um responses in terms of lessons and
and you know looking at the current response that is clearly in a lot of uh improvements mates
um and a lot of the the lessons learned where actually
implemented which resulted in in many ways in a um
and and and affective response um you know there there's others that it is for improvement but definitely betterment than last time
you know any warning systems worked uh i think that funding came online a lot quicker
um and uh done than previously and and that's the positive but
we still notice that there was and you know there's a lot of improvements to
be made there were still challenges as as a michael panels of highlighted
a couple of them uh i wanted to just rees quickly um one is um it's
uh uh the use of consortia um so the cash response i
mean i was it in february and i tend to the
number of record emission meetings uh in nairobi and what i noticed
was that despite the fact that there is cached scale
uh it's really late by for a a few mean consortia and they
were existing consortia that existed three the response nudging designs and
so just so you're not really set up for that emergency
response while uh uh the mechanisms where they are
to distribute funds through through these existing consortia i think an important important point to note is that
they would maybe we're not necessarily set out to do response or invested
enough unprepared must act quickly to get cash to good scale
and in fact when i was in in some record mission meetings what i hertz uh
it country to um i think what's that on the panel before was that
but the majority tears where requesting capacity in cash and they were
requesting a standards and the guidance and harmon next approaches that
they could use to develop their own catch a program
and that was uh something that the pure it's lacking at the time um
or to mention catch working good you know that the cats working group you know in my own passing opinion
has has done great work a a in um given the fact only started and jenny was in it
but why did it take so long to come on board a given the fact
that response starts it's a fairly uh earlier uh in the year before
um so again i think there's there's lessons we can learn to to do better uh i
i know i only have a minute or so that so i'm gonna try to cover
focus on these key points here and collaboration um why so why
did as it my last point why there should be um
cash working group and coordination collaboration mechanisms not kick and earlier i mean genius of like
that was a big weakness in terms of preparedness is not usually comes cash i think we all face
i'm a lack of a sufficient an adequate funding resurfacing of preparedness
efforts for emergencies even though we know that somalia has
cyclical uh jokes and actresses like this yes it is better
but it wasn't good enough i don't think so um
what do we do i act is to go to the opportunities 'cause it one and a positive now and i do think that uh
be again the the piece about collaboration and what we in the c.
c. d. are trying to do is is look at uh
uh a more of a modular approach recognising that context are all
different everywhere we call collaboration looks very different and every place
given you know the diversity of actors the diversity of capacity on the grounds um and you know context are different everywhere
i was really in college d. c. unit she's ours presentation today that um effectively
with saying that mother that let's stop thinking about operating models as such
and that's think about more of a what we call in c. c. d. a modular approach
our breaking up that value chain even more than uh what i call has done and with these guidelines
from displacement everything else but let's break it down even farther and look at his best place to the wall
and humanities system i think if we do that uh it's it that's really
gonna for this the greatest opportunity to come together and collaborate more effectively
