10th PPRD South “prevention and preparedness” workshop for staff-level officials
“A role of national Civil Protection/Civil Defence Authorities in managing forced migration crises in complex emergency and disaster situations”
Tunis, Tunisia, 16-17 July 2012
The main objective of the workshop was to examine possible scenarios of forced migration crises in the Mediterranean and to discuss how the national civil protection authorities of the region could better collaborate among them and with international humanitarian actors in tackling these crisis.
In the first day of the workshop, the Tunisian Civil Protection illustrated the lessons learned from the management of the humanitarian crisis caused by the massive flow of refugees seeking shelter and protection from the conflict in Libya in 2011. During the following discussions, workshop participants tried to set out specific roles for the different national and international agencies involved in delivering assistance and providing protection to the population affected by a migration crisis and examined possible organizational measures for improving coordination among national and international players. In the second day of the event, operational aspects of migration crisis management were addressed, such as tools and best practices for planning temporary shelters, camp management and minimum standards of assistance.
