More Disaster Response Capacity Building

Building on HFH Cambodia’s first DR project, and the promising results of recent DR M&E activities and Reflection workshop, colleagues from Habitat for Humanity International, Mario Flores from the Atlanta office and James Samuel from HFH AP conducted a one day DR workshop.

The workshop was arranged to synchronize and strengthen HFHC’s understanding of the HFH strategy for disaster response as guided by the Pathways to Permanence. The workshop included discussions on globally-accepted guiding principles, standards, coordination mechanisms and program “products” for the post-disaster shelter and settlements sector.

The specific objectives of of the workshop include reach consensus on strategic opportunities posed by early engagement in post-disaster shelter assistance through implementation of program interventions consistent with latest sector trends, access to new resource development opportunities, and execution of partnerships and grants agreements in support of these interventions.

Participants of the workshop were some key management staff of HFH Cambodia and the DR AdHoc team.
