"Experience has shown that the wake of a major disaster is the wrong time to try to develop new guidelines and systems to address an emergency, so I’m really excited to be able to contribute to such an ambitious and innovative project to build emergency capacity before the onset of a crisis. The project importantly captures and disseminates knowledge and experience, enabling not just an individual or an organisation to gain knowledge, but also allowing the humanitarian sector as a whole to take a stride forward."
Angela Rouse, ECB Agency Manager at CARE
