How to Prevent and Mitigate Risks in a Crisis Environment
This Online Briefing Session will focus on the essential elements of crisis and risk management, offering a view of the main tools to assess risks and discuss risks associated with the humanitarian response in specific contexts.
Select participants in the event can volunteer to contribute to the design of the CCHN Regional Think Tank on Humanitarian Negotiation in Asia planned for 2021. This design group will convene the following day after each event and will continue to meet regularly in the run up to the Think Tank in February 2021.
