Towards A Safer World

Towards a Safer World (TASW) is a multi-stakeholder network of practitioners on whole of society preparedness for pandemics and comparable threats, led by the UN System. It was launched after the last ISDR Global Platform in 2011.

The first phase of the initiative was to review the impact of 'whole-of-society' pandemic preparedness efforts since 2005.  11 parameters were used in the analysis and key achievements and lessons were identified and documented.  

New Inter Agency Standing Committee Simulation Exercise Materials

Simulation exercises have gained increasing prominence in humanitarian preparedness over the past several years, particularly by the organisations comprising the Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC).

Simulations serve to test plans, rehearse procedures, identify gaps, solve problems, increase confidence and generally add to the overall capacity of organisations and individuals to react to emergencies in an effective, timely and reliable manner.
