IASC Exit Strategy for Humanitarian Actors in the Context of Complex Emergencies
The exit strategy is primarily a process of moving from emergency to rehabilitation and development addressing a change in the roles of the UN agencies and other humanitarian organizations in the country, thus affecting the functions their respective staff may play in the country.
This paper addresses the exit strategy from the stand point of an emergency requiring a humanitarian response and considers the conditions to be met in order to proceed with such a strategy. While not debating the issue, it takes for granted both possibilities of an emergency affecting an entire country or even a number of countries in a region as well as a situation where the emergency affects only a part of a country.
