Aid agencies in recent urban emergencies have often lacked the ability to respond effectively in these environments. The urban context is much more complex than many rural or camp-focused emergencies, requiring specialist technical support to make immediate repairs to infrastructure that aid agencies don’t have the capacity to offer.

At the other end, they are facilitated over a period of several months and include wide consultation with staff, partners and beneficiaries, and are used to inform strategy at all levels.

DESCRIPTION

The Humanitarian sector recognises that for too long there has been a gap in including gender, age and disability considerations in an emergency response. Gender, age and disability are all key factors that influence access to services, programmes and protection in an emergency. This means that aid workers’ efforts to help lead and strengthen recovery often fail to reach the most vulnerable.
