WORKING WITH DG ECHO AS AN NGO PARTNER | 2021 - 2027
The purpose of these sections is to verify the pertinence of the identification of the beneficiaries and their vulnerability.
5.1 BENEFICIARIES - IDENTIFICATION CRITERIA
This section will allow DG ECHO to assess whether the identification mechanisms and selection criteria of beneficiaries are pertinent, in particular whether they belong to the most vulnerable groups. The partner should briefly explain how the direct beneficiaries were targeted, identified and selected. This should be done by sector.
5.2. INVOLVEMENT OF BENEFICIARIES IN THE DESIGN OF AND IN THE ACTION
This section is particularly important to assess how the accountability to beneficiaries is concretely implemented. The partner must explain how and by what means the beneficiaries and affected populations have been and will be involved in the design, implementation and monitoring of the Action. Particular attention should be paid to the involvement of diverse groups (gender, age, persons with disabilities, and any other relevant diversity groups).
In exceptional cases, when it was not possible to involve certain groups of beneficiaries, the partner has to explain why.
5.3. DOES THE PROPOSED ACTION PROVIDE A SPECIFIC TARGETED RESPONSE FOR GROUPS OR INDIVIDUALS AND/OR SPECIFIC VULNERABILITIES?
This section allows DG ECHO to identify whether the proposed Action as a whole specifically targets certain groups of vulnerabilities and to assess whether this corresponds to the findings of the problem, needs and risk assessment. If the whole action exclusively target one or a few specific groups, the partner will be asked to identify those groups by clicking on the corresponding groups in section 5.3.1. It is possible to select several groups, with a maximum of 4 groups.
Note that this concerns specific targeted activities designed according to specific vulnerabilities and not mainstreaming of gender-age, protection and disability inclusion, as this is expected in all actions.
In 5.3.2, it should be explained why the group or specific vulnerability has been targeted, and the specific response foreseen should be elaborated on.
In 5.3.3 click on the group/vulnerability that was specifically targeted by the action,
If the situation has changed use 5.3.4 5.3.4 to provide an update on why there were changes in the selection of groups/vulnerabilities, and which targeted responses were provided.
