What do we actually mean when we speak about ‘returns on investment’ in humanitarian preparedness? A short presentation on a return on investment study on the £30m DFID-funded Disasters and Emergencies Preparedness Programme will be followed by a panel discussion that will address this and the following questions:
– How does investment in preparedness lead to reduced costs, time, and better quality response?
– Since RoI in preparedness is more complex than just a financial equation, what are the challenges and solutions to effectively optimising RoI?
– Should particular types of investments be prioritised over others? If so what are these?
– As the sector undergoes increasing scrutiny, do you think that evidencing strong RoI will become a more important component of preparedness activities and programmes?
