Is investment in preparedness a good use of humanitarian funding? What are the best approaches to funding and programme design to ensure sustainable solutions and community leadership in preparedness programming? How can we inform future programming to ensure we have the right people with the right skills at the right place and time to prepare for and respond to disasters in the most appropriate way?
The global conference ‘Preparing for Shock: Is Preparedness the New Frontier?’ which took place in Geneva on the 14th and 15th March 2018, we brought together donors, NGOs and networks, government representatives, private sector, academic institutions, community representatives and practitioners to explore lessons, experiences and evidence around four thematic areas and inform the way forward for preparedness. The sessions looked at enabling approaches and obstacles to sustainable preparedness programming, we heard from local implementing staff, national networks, global programmers and researchers with first-hand knowledge on these areas.
The plenary sessions were recorded and can be access via the links below.
