HOW TO REGISTER:
Contingency planning (also referred to as response planning) is a critical activity for organizations and communities to prepare themselves to respond well to a disaster event and its potential impacts. Contingency planning aims to prepare an organization to respond well to an emergency and its potential humanitarian impact. Developing a contingency plan involves making decisions in advance about the management of human and financial resources, coordination and communications procedures, and being aware of a range of technical and logistical responses. Such planning is a management tool, involving all sectors, which can help ensure timely and effective provision of humanitarian aid to those most in need when a disaster occurs. Time spent in contingency planning equals time saved when a disaster occurs. Effective contingency planning should lead to timely and effective disaster-relief operations. Contingency planning is one component of a much broader emergency preparedness process and is included within business continuity programing alongside operational continuity, disaster recovery planning, policy creation, established processes, and more.
