A key goal of the Disasters and Emergencies Preparedness Programme (DEPP) is to invest in the capacity of local and national humanitarian actors who are best placed to respond to emergencies. DEPP provides skills training for individuals as well as capacity development support for organisations, communities and governments. By the end of 2016 the programme had trained over 3500 people across 12 countries, and had supported capacity development for over 100 local and national partners.
This briefing paper outlines the key successes, challenges and learnings on how the DEPP is helping to develop and strengthen local preparedness capacity. This short piece is based on the 2016 DEPP Learning Report which can be found here.
