Responding to Humanitarian Disasters: Collaboration in Crisis
In the last decade, the frequency, severity, and complexity of disasters has dramatically increased around the globe. In the immediate aftermath of many disasters, individual response from humanitarian organizations around the world can overwhelm communities, infrastructure and, impact the effectiveness of emergency relief and long-term recovery. How do the largest humanitarian agencies coordinate their emergency and long-term response? How are humanitarian organizations individually and collectively rising to meet increasingly rigorous accountability and impact measurements? What has been learned from the emergency response to recent disasters in Japan, Libya, Côte d'Ivoire and other crises over the past decade such as the 2003 Tsunami in South and Southeast Asia, the crisis in Darfur, Sudan, the January 2010 earthquake in Haiti, and the 2010 floods in Pakistan?
The World Affairs Council and Mercy Corps present emergency response directors from the Interagency Working Group (IWG), composed of emergency response leadership from seven of the largest operational humanitarian agencies, for an exclusive networking event and panel discussion.
