DRC Standby Roster
Requesting a Humanitarian Response Roster Expert
During an emergency response, UN country operations need to quickly augment their human resources on the ground. Requesting experts through their standby partners is one mechanism that complements their own internal surge capacities.
Requesting deployees from the Humanitarian Response Roster
Deployment of DRC Standby Roster experts from the Humanitarian Response Roster can happen through two modalities:
One modality is in-kind deployments funded by the Danish International Development Agency (Danida) or the British Government through the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office, FCDO (formerly known as DFID).
The second modality is deployments funded by the requesting UN agency. For these UN-funded deployments, the DRC Standby Roster provides administrative and contractual services and the costs are invoiced to the UN on a quarterly basis.
Deployments can only be requested by UN agencies holding a Memorandum of Understanding with the DRC Standby Roster.
