PREPAREDNESS AND RESPONSE PLANNING IN REDUCING VULNERABILITY AND IMPROVING HUMANITARIAN ASSISTANCE
18 November 2020
People struck by disasters and emergencies count on coordinated and effective assistance and protection that are on time. In most disaster and crisis, the complexity and scale of assistance needed often stretch beyond the simplistic approach of delivering aid assistance without the strategic lens of responding in an integrated and sustainable way.
Comprehensive and strategic preparedness and response planning are needed for the integration of multi-sector/cross-cutting response approaches, resource requirements, and monitoring arrangements to mobilize system-wide response to humanitarian crisis and developmental needs.
