This short presentation will focus on the opportunities as well as day-to-day frustrations with preparedness planning and training international humanitarian work. The presentation will highlight aspects of three relatively recent emergency preparedness strategies:

Monsoon contingency planning for Kutapalong Refugee Camp in Bangladesh

Refugee emergency preparedness simulation exercise in Tajikistan

UNHCR’s Emergency Response Team (ERT) roster for emergency response preparedness 

These mini-illustrations will be from 10 – 15 minutes each, with an open Q & A session following for 20-30 minutes. The presenter, Jim Good is a Partner at InterWorks, LLC, based in Madison, Wisconsin and has been training, planning, and simulating emergency responses for improved preparedness with international NGOs and the UN system for the last 30 years.
