UNDP’s Strategic Plan (2018-2021) recognizes the importance of supporting countries, responding to humanitarian emergencies, with development and recovery choices that reduce vulnerability and contribute to a development perspective to strengthen humanitarian and – where relevant – peacebuilding responses. The objective of the Crisis Response Unit (CRU) is to ensure that UNDP is well positioned to respond in the timeliest and effective manner to crises, triggered by disasters or armed conflicts alike.
Additional staff trainings are planned in 2018, including training on the newly developed Crisis Response Packages. CRU is also finalizing an e-learning course on the SOP for Immediate Crisis Response and will be developing additional virtual trainings during 2018.
