Virtual Disaster Simulation Session 2018

An interactive simulation session to understand supply chain strategies needed for a multi-sectoral response to crisis situations


Wednesday 5th September 2018


This interactive simulation is part of the AIDF Global Summit and is aimed at humanitarian and development professionals. The session is available on a first come first served basis.


Activity in Humanitarian Response by Reviewing the Actors Involved in Emergency Response


Groups will define the relationships between the many different actors and sectors in an emergency, especially as it relates to supply chain, product donation and private sector engagement after a disaster. Participants will be familiarized with all of the stakeholders, and by completing the activity, they will reinforce the understanding and strategies needed for a multi-sectoral response to crisis situations.


Participants will work in groups using case studies that reflect small-scale to L3 emergencies. This exercise is designed to give participants new insights into the breadth of the global humanitarian assistance architecture and how to use the many resources available to engage in and advance an effective emergency response.
