Global Consultation Questions

Question 1. Do you have any specific changes to propose to the conceptual framework for the Common Platform (vision, mission, purpose, who it would serve, how it would operate, guiding principles, etc.)?

Question 2. Five functions for a Common Platform have been proposed:  1) inspire political commitment; 2) generate new funding; 3) improve planning and response; 4) build national and global capacity; and 5) strengthen accountability and learning.

  • Based on your experiences working in countries affected by crises, are there 1-2 clear priority functions that a common platform should address? If so, what are they and why?
  • Are there any functions, or elements within the functions, that are missing from the list and that should be added?
  • Do you have any concerns about any of these functions? If so, what are they and are there any potential solutions to overcome these concerns?

Question 3. There are three proposed options as to the scale of the Common Platform and how efforts might be focused (see comparison table in the overview document; more details on each option can be found in the ODI options paper).

  • Which of these three options do you prefer?
  • What are the strengths of the option(s) you prefer?
  • What are the gaps and/or modifications that you suggest? Please detail any concerns you have, as well as potential solutions to overcoming these concerns.
  • Do you have any suggestions regarding sequencing and scale up between the options?
  • Do you have an alternative suggestion of an option for the Common Platform in terms of scale and how the effort might be focused?

Include responses to these questions and a summary of your discussions in your Meet-Up report, or post them directly to the INEE Discussion Forum.
