Agency RED provides consultation in various degraded environments in Africa and Central Asia, to support international organisations and NGOs to provide assistance to the most vulnerable.
A challenging World
With well over 100 million people affected by natural disasters in the year 2016 alone and more than 65.6 million people around the world having been forced to flee their homes, the need for humanitarian aid is increasing all over the world, pushed by severe ethnic, political and religious conflicts as well as extreme weather events caused by climate change.
Whether it is a man-made crisis or a natural disaster, responding to a crisis always is a challenge: Timeliness, targeting, adequacy, efficiency, coordination, communication, security, perception, transparency, etc. No matter how experienced an organisation might be, how well trained the deployed team can be, how adapted the tools are, the difference between a successful response and a not so successful one is a very fine line. Equally challenging is the transition towards mid-term to longer term response type.
With highly qualified professionals with more than 20 years of experience in numerous crisis and post-crisis contexts around the world, we provide the necessary expertise at all stages of the project cycle management. Through necessary external analysis and tailored solutions we improve rapid response capacity, targeted accuracy, assistance adequacy, cost-efficiency, coordination, communication as well as security management.
Our work rely on field based surveys and recommendations, adapted trainings, as well as direct support in the implementation of the proposed solutions.
With a unique experience in this domain, Agency RED can also guide its clients through a transition process from emergency to resilience building / reconstruction phase.
The key to a successful response is about the ability to adapt, contextualise all the previous acquired experiences, to a new, unfolding situation. It is more about the ability to question oneself own experience and knowledge rather than certitudes on how things should be done.
