Education and training
We develop and deliver training courses for a range of clients in order to strengthen capacity to prepare for and respond effectively to humanitarian emergencies, across for-profit and non-profit organisations. We strive to ensure that individuals and organisations are equipped to respond effectively to the situations they deal with regularly. Our training supports organisations to learn from past responses and plan for future ones.
Technical and training support to the AHA Centre
Humanitarian Advisory Group, funded by the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, provided technical and training support to the AHA Centre. The ASEAN Coordinating Centre for Humanitarian Assistance on disaster management (AHA Centre) has recently completed the development of their Emergency Response Organization (ERO) Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and Guidelines. The AHA Centre holds monthly ERO exercises internally to test response activation structures. This simulation, led by Humanitarian Advisory Group (HAG), was the first externally facilitated exercise to involve the entire AHA Centre operational staff.
