How did we select five ECB Consortia?
Demand from the field for participation in ECB Phase II was high, with 21 countries submitting Letters of Interest. The number, diversity and high quality of these submissions shows the energy and enthusiasm at field level for the concept of collaborative capacity building for emergencies. The final selection was made by the Principals of the six particapting agencies. The group carefully considered the scope and quality of the Letter's, placing particular emphasis on geographical distribution; level of disaster or emergency risk; political stability; regional linkages and the potential reach of learning developed within the consortia. They sought a diversity of contexts or settings, including urbanization, linguistic and cultural background, and climate trends for each country.
The following five consortia were finally selected as Country/Regional Consortia from 2008-2013. For the full list of consortia members, click on each country/region below.
