Private Sector Engagement

The private sector is often amongst the first responder in a crisis and may have significant resources both material, staff and funding as well as good situational awareness and network that can be leveraged by national and international responders. It is therefore critical to engage with business networks in the initial stages, in an effort to integrated them into humanitarian coordination structures and ensure a response based on prioritized needs.
