About this course
The module is split into two sessions, beginning with the foundational concepts for humanitarian coordination and culminating in individual action plans to enhance the coordination of the response. In session one, there is an overview of the purpose of humanitarian coordination, and participants map the different mechanisms in place for coordination to the Ukraine humanitarian crisis.
