TRANSFORMING SURGE CAPACITY

Update: 30-June-2017

Learnings from the corporate partnerships (Chennai floods) and community contingency plans for disaster preparedness (Ganjam, Odisha) in India

This surge private sector pilot project has been a good learning for ActionAid and its partners. I am sure other national and international agencies along with corporates which have been part of deliberations in Odisha, Chennai and New Delhi would have gained a lot from it. Understanding the working of private sector and its focus is crucial for us to help them in our disaster response and preparedness activities. In course of this project we had documented few case studies from Chennai where corporates supported us in the disaster response after Chennai floods in 2015. We also revisited women led preparedness plans in Ganjam, Odisha and tried to link it up with corporates in it.
