Vanuatu: Country Preparedness Package



The Country Preparedness Package (CPP) is a joint initiative of the Government of the Republic of Vanuatu and the Pacific Humanitarian Team (PHT). The CPP is intended to strengthen the preparedness and collaboration between national and international actors in disaster response. The CPP is developed and agreed with the national government before a disaster. Through the process, national actors become more aware of international tools and services and how they can be activated. This will enable a more ‘demand-driven’ response tailored to the specific context.

The CPP also helps the international actors to become more aware of the existing national systems and structures by clearly documenting and making key information available to all. This will help ensure that responses are nationally-led with international actors supporting and working through the existing national structures.

The completed CPP is a set of documents outlining the existing national structures and the agreed plans for utilizing international support in a disaster response. These documents are available online and include links to national reference documents.
