Established through secondments from member agencies, the AoR Rapid Response Team (RRT) provides high quality, rapidly deployable Child Protection coordination and technical capacity in humanitarian situations. Deployments are made to UNICEF, as Sub-Cluster lead agency for Child Protection, at the country level to support interagency coordination.
The RRT consists of high calibre professionals with proven coordination and information management skills as well as technical Child Protection expertise.

Does a contract need to be issued?
No contract is needed, although ToRs must be provided with the initial request and RRT personnel must be fully accommodated within the Country Operation (Official ID card; assigned supervisor; included in the organizational chart and security arrangements; induction briefings; necessary equipment and transportation). Generic ToRs are available in order to facilitate the development of more specific ToRs.
