Build and maintain relationships within and across sectors.

For multi-organizational response mechanisms such as the cluster system to work efficiently, relationships need to be built and maintained with and between organizations and government stakeholders, between sectors, and across scales and levels of authority. Engagement cannot wait for disasters; relationships must be built in a systematic, ongoing way that allows members to familiarize themselves with each other’s strengths and weaknesses, builds trust, and promotes cooperation.
