Coordinated Community Engagement in Humanitarian Action
In October 2016, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) convened a regional workshop on coordinated community engagement in humanitarian action.
The workshop sought to:
1. Strengthen the regional network of experts interested in supporting innovative approaches to community engagement in humanitarian action.
2. Share case studies and innovative models of good practice such as common service approaches.
3. Identify key thematic issues for partners to address in the short to medium term.
4. Develop and agree on how to integrate planning for community engagement into emergency response preparedness processes.
The ETC participated in the workshop, presenting its 2020 strategy and facilitating a discussion on ‘community engagement and technology’.
This is the full outcomes report from the workshop.
