UNHRD welcomes its newest Partner, the Austrian Government, who signed a Technical Agreement with UNHRD this past month to further support their response efforts in the ongoing refugee crisis in Europe. Less than a week after the signing, at the request of Austria, a team of UNHRD and WFP Field Engineering was on the ground to conduct an assessment mission, and on 1 December the first shipment of a fully equipped, insulated mobile storage unit arrived in Traiskirchen. Requests for further equipment have been received and are currently being specified. The UNHRD Rapid Response Team (RRT) has arrived in Traiskirchen for installation.
