Ws - Who does What, Where and When (and for Whom)
The 4Ws are a coordination tool used to provide key information regarding which organizations (Who) are carrying out which activities (What) in which locations (Where) in Which period (When). This information is essential to child protection and other sector cluster coordinators and organizations to coordinate their activities effectively and ensure that humanitarian needs are met without gaps or duplication. The 5Ws add the element of "for Whom" to the 4Ws.
