Many parts of the humanitarian system have used RTEs over the last five years. A
list of the better known RTEs is as follows:
The Inter-Agency Standing Committee piloting of three inter-agency RTEs
in Mozambique and Pakistan has led to some key lessons, both for ongoing
humanitarian reform processes, and for improving RTE quality.
UNHCR have worked with RTE-like mechanisms since 1992, in 10 countries.
They continue to use and promote RTEs, for example a 2007 five-country
review of the cluster approach and IDPs, as well as making available
guidance material which has proved invaluable for other agencies piloting

UNICEF has played an important role in bringing different actors together
around RTEs, generating discussion and debate, reviewing past experience,
and pushing for clarity on the minimum requirements for an RTE.
