The Humanitarian Emergency Response Review Posted March 28, 2011 by Adrian Nance


On 28 March 2011 the UK Government published the Review chaired by Lord Ashdown.

Wings Like Eagles finds it particularly interesting because: experts predict that the numbers affected by disasters could climb from 263 million in 2010 to 375 million in 2013 (that’s over 40%); that we need a more anticipatory approach; and we need to create resilience.

This reassures our Trustees because this is exactly what we are trying to do – anticipate, build capacity where it will be needed and be prepared for more disasters not less.  We are keeping at it!
