HLA roundtable discussion – Emergency planning and response logistics – free of charge

HLA is running a one hour round table discussion at International Disaster Response Expo on 29th November 2018 on the subject of Emergency planning and response logistics: synergies and coordination between humanitarian actors, private sector and the military.

While there can be alignment and interoperability among government agencies at a national level, there is limited engagement between civil protection entities, the military and humanitarian actors internationally. For example, terminology, as one of the underpinning elements of interoperable communications must be understood to ensure coherent multi-agency emergency activities; joint planning and training activities would also be valuable.

Panellists include:

  • Jack Jones, Humanitarian Response Manager – DFID
  • Mike Whiting, Aviation Transport Consultant – formerly with UNHCR, WFP and others
  • Stuart Smith, Development Director – Volga-Dnepr
  • George Fenton, CEO – HLA

The aim of the session is to identify key challenges and potential opportunities to improve local and international emergency operations preparedness and response.

We are running a different workshop in the morning. Places are limited to 25 in the room, so please reserve your place early by clicking below.

This workshop is free of charge but HLA relies on donations to further its work. Please donate today online to help our efforts.
