Emergency Response Preparedness
This package provides practical guidance to assist humanitarian
country teams in preparing to respond to potential emergencies with
appropriate humanitarian assistance and protection. These guidelines
are a tool to: (1) Develop a common understanding of risks and to develop
a system to monitor those risks to ensure early action is taken
when required.(2) Establish a minimum level of multi-hazard preparedness.
(3) Take additional action, including the development of contingency
plans for specific risks that can be used as the basis for a Preliminary
Response Plan to meet the differentiated needs of an affected
population in the first 3-4 weeks of a humanitarian emergency.
