Tech RRT Webinar: Recent Tech RRT deployments to Erbil, Iraq

When: Thursday, 27 April 2017

Time: 4:00 pm Central European Time  

Duration: 1 hour

Facilitator: Andi Kendle, Tech RRT Program Manager

Presenters: Scott Logue (Assessment Advisor, Tech RRT), Daniel Takea (SBC/ CMAM Advisor, Tech RRT) and Sebsibie Teshome (IYCF-E Advisor, Tech RRT on loan from Save the Children)

Topic: The Tech RRT recently completed three deployments to Erbil, Iraq, to support the nutrition response to the Mosul emergency with experts in Assessments, IYCF-E and SBC. As a means of information sharing and to foster discussion on the situation, the Tech RRT invites you to a webinar on these three deployments. There will be a presentation to highlight what was done during the deployments, findings from the assessments undertaken, broad recommendations and lessons learned; this will be followed by an open discussion. We hope that a wide range of organizations and donors will join this presentation and discussion.

Background on the projects: The Technical Rapid Response Team (Tech RRT) is a partnership between International Medical Corps, Save the Children and Action Against Hunger working in close collaboration with the Global Nutrition Cluster and UNICEF, funded by USAID/OFDA. The purpose of the Tech RRT is to improve the quality of nutrition humanitarian response by deploying technical surge, providing remote support and building the capacity of nutrition partners while national capacity is overstretched or inexperienced in nutrition in emergencies.

Remote access: Please register by 26th April to sperera@internationalmedicalcorps.org to receive the link to our online platform. Online access is limited to the first 50 respondents.
