Since 2012, the consortium has been responding to the need to improve preparedness to slow onset crises. The first phase of the project focused on 1) enhancing collection and analysis of market and household economy information; 2) improving situation and response analysis through the creation of a context appropriate framework leading to timely and relevant response; and 3) increasing operational preparedness and technical capacity to prepare for and respond effectively and timely to slow onset crises.

• Revise the training content based on participant feedback and finalsze the training pack.

• Lead the reference group made of development and humanitarian practitioners of the consortium member agencies as well as from other agencies – as/where relevant;
