Description

​Interest is emerging among humanitarians in Incident Command Systems (ICS), approaches used by civil defence organisations in many countries, but relatively unknown in the humanitarian world. This webinar considers the possibilities of applying elements of ICS in humanitarian response, including questions such as: How can ICS be adapted by humanitarians? Has anyone tried? What challenges/solutions did they come across? What would they do differently? Are there signs this has improved the response?

This webinar explores the experiences of World Vision and MSF, who have both considered the use of ICS within their own humanitarian responses.
