#tbt to last month when the GEG team was together in Virginia to host a Humanitarian Field Security Training for Trickle Up. The training entailed a 3-day simulation exercise where participants learned field security protocols and procedures through hands on experience. Tailored for employees who will deploy to high risk locations, staff members learned to apply necessary security and safety skills, ensuring they have a requisite understanding of the skills, abilities and tactics needed to operate safely in challenging operating environments. Key topics included: safety and security, situational awareness, austere medicine, negotiation and risk mitigation. #trickleup #GEG #securitytraining

“GEG's 3-day course provided invaluable security training to several members of the Trickle Up team, both those who face risk every day during their work in the field as well as senior management that has the responsibility for ensuring that we fulfill our Duty of Care obligations throughout our organization. GEG trainers were excellent and the curriculum well organized. As we have security training and advice needs in the future, our first call will be to GEG.” – Bill Abrams, Trickle Up President @ Winchester, Virginia

Last month, a team from GEG and Training in Aid designed an African National DRR workshop for the CIMA Foundation in Genoa, Italy. Our team designed this workshop platform, and supported the training, coaching and mentoring of selected CIMA Subject Expert Training Teams in order to assure their ability to deliver well-presented workshops appropriate to the African audience.

The GEG/Training in Aid support to CIMA included designing the appropriate platform for country level workshops, focusing on a skills-building/coaching process that would enhance the knowledge, skills, and confidence of the Experts Teams going to the field, in order to successfully deliver and transfer scientific data and results.

More than three months after a massive earthquake devastated Nepal, hundreds of thousands of people remain homeless as reconstruction efforts are blocked by logistical and bureaucratic hurdles.

Global Emergency Group photo by Gert Venghaus. #GEG provides protective equipment for Nepali volunteers. May 25, 2015 - Responding to an appeal by the local community, Canadian Forces and UNDAC CMCoord, Global Emergency Group provided 50 hardhats and 50 pairs of strong protective gloves to the demolition and debris removal efforts in #Sankhu, 45 minutes east of Kathmandu. Two days prior, a group of some 50 Nepali volunteers arrived and spontaneously offered their help after being motivated by the joint efforts of the local residents and the Canadian troops. As Capt. Zak Albers stated shortly after the handover: "We and the volunteers greatly appreciate this support from GEG. Our volunteers can now work safely, without fear of injury." #GlobalEmergencyGroup #DART #UNDAC #NepalEarthquake #NepalEarthquakeRelief #Nepal

Despite reports to the contrary, some critical preparations have been made in advance of the devastating earthquake that struck Nepal today. An excellent example is a post-earthquake strategic Debris Management plan created in 2014 by Gov't of Nepal and IOM for the Kathmandu Valley: https://lnkd.in/brhHxfZ

GEG also worked with IFRC and the Nepal Red Cross in 2014 conducting continuity of operations planning. Now is the critical time for implementation of these plans.

Nigeria: Violence has escalated significantly in the northeast. Boko Haram killed more than 2,100 people in the first 11 days of the year.

ODI report ( https://lnkd.in/dcM3Bhz) with important DRR contextual information: the international community spent $13.5 billion on reducing the risk of disasters in the past two decades, just 40 cents for every $100 of aid (as compared to $862 billion in disaster losses suffered by developing countries). Many high-risk nations – especially poor, drought-prone states in sub-Saharan Africa – receive negligible DRR financing as compared to other developing nations.

This report examines the record of the international community to date, investigating the priorities in financing of DRR, and asking questions of both the equity and adequacy of past efforts. Beyond this it points to the future of a more rational, targeted investment in risk reduction.
