DRAFT – Toolkit on Child Rights in Humanitarian Crises and Post-Crisis Transition, July 2012 Tool 1: IASC Operational Guidelines on Human Rights in Natural Disasters 24 IASC Operational Guidelines on Human Rights in Natural Disasters In 2006, the Inter-Agency Standing Committee developed Operational Guidelines on Human Rights and Natural Disasters which include the following general principles: I. Persons affected by natural disasters should enjoy the same rights and freedoms under human rights law as others in their country and not be discriminated against. Targeted measures to address assistance and protection needs of specific categories of affected populations do not constitute discrimination if, and to the extent that, they are based on differing needs. II. States have the primary duty and responsibility to provide assistance to persons affected by natural disasters and to protect their human rights. III. Organisations providing protection and assistance to persons affected by natural disasters accept that human rights underpin all humanitarian action. In situations of natural disaster they should therefore respect the human rights of persons affected by disasters at all times and advocate for the promotion and protection of those rights to the fullest extent. Humanitarian organisations should not promote, actively participate in, or in any other manner contribute to, or endorse policies or activities, which do or can lead to human rights violations by States. They should strive to enable the affected people to exercise their own rights. IV. Organisations providing protection and assistance in situations of natural disasters should be guided by these Operational Guidelines in all of their activities, in particular when monitoring and assessing the situation and needs of affected persons, when programming and implementing their own activities as well as when entering into a dialogue with governmental authorities on the State’s duties and responsibilities under international human rights and, where applicable, international humanitarian and refugee law. In doing so, they should remain accountable to all of their relevant stakeholders, in particular to the persons affected by the natural disaster. V. All communities affected by a natural disaster should be entitled to easy accessible information concerning: (a) the nature and level of disaster they are facing; (b) the possible risk mitigation measures that can be taken; (c) early warning information; and (d) information on ongoing humanitarian assistance, recovery efforts and their respective entitlements.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
