This guidance note has been developed pursuant to the request made by the IASC Working Group at its 73rd meeting on 18-20 March 2009. It supersedes guidance on developing a broad-based humanitarian country team issued by the Emergency Relief Coordinator to Humanitarian Coordinators on 20 February 2006.2 It is not meant to be prescriptive, but aims to provide guidance that can be tailored to each country situation, as necessary.
