Highlights 2011

  • A comprehensive Government-support package to enhance institutional capacity for disaster management continued to emphasize the transfer of knowledge and technical expertise. Much of OCHA’s input was channelled through the national and provincial Disaster Management Agency. Three training courses were arranged for senior management to develop organizational leadership and management skills to prepare for and respond to disasters.
  • Preparedness activities and funding requirements were identified with Government agencies and clusters. In October 2011, the Humanitarian Country Team endorsed the plan to integrate identified cluster priority preparedness actions into an inter-cluster preparedness package, to be launched in March 2012.
