Emergency Preparedness and Response

Effective emergency response requires collective action. It is therefore an important part of the Cluster’s work to prepare partners to respond in a coordinated way, and provide subsequent technical support and coordination during the response phase.

The selection of resources on this page is far from exhaustive, and many more documents can be found on the INEE website.
