Humanitarian Supply Chain Training June

Humanitarian workers require competent and professional support system that will ensure the right supplies are delivered at the right time and manner to the right location and to the right beneficiaries to alleviate prolonged suffering to survivors. The supply chain is therefore central to effective humanitarian work. This is different for corporate organizations whose bottom line is profit making. To achieve effective humanitarian performance, organizations have invested heavily in supply chain logistics. However, most of the personnel responsible for this critical function in these organizations are not professionally prepared to complement their organizations because they lack humanitarian preparedness background and training and those qualified and experienced are stationed at national offices or headquarters.

Community Based Climate Change Adaptation & Resilience May

Climate change (CC) threatens progress on development particularly in developing countries because they have the least capacity to cope. Adaptation to climate change in these countries is therefore critical. These adjustments in response to the negative impacts of climate change are necessary as they are locally focused and inexpensive. Adaptation efforts based at the local level address exposure of vulnerable recipients to the adverse impacts of climate change. Community-based climate change adaptation identifies and facilitates local development activities that strengthen the capacity of local people to adapt to the capricious climate. This approach employs participatory processes and disaster risk reduction.

Disaster Risk Reduction and Management, Mitigation, And Response Training

Developing countries’ disaster profiles are dominated by droughts, fires, floods, technological accidents, diseases and epidemics that disrupt people’s livelihoods, destroy the infrastructure, divert planned use of resources, interrupt economic activities and retard development. In addition to this, a fast-tracked pace of development in the developing world has brought with it the perils of precarious living, pressures on non-renewable resources, densely populated spaces that are unplanned, unsafe and risky and environmental degradation among others. As a consequence, the frequency of disasters such as earthquakes, floods, cyclones, landslides, droughts, and fire outbreaks has gone up. Something needs to be done.
