UNDAC Talks: Episode 1 - Marcus Elten

Ongoing course

The wisdom and expertise of the UNDAC community brought to you through UNDAC Talks. This video is the start of a series of online webinars offered, throughout the year, opportunities for UNDAC members – and beyond – to learn about the latest in the field of disaster response. With access to virtually any topics related to humanitarian action, OCHA Field Coordination Support Section will leverage the UNDAC network to the benefit of the larger humanitarian community.

In the first Talk, FCSS brought you Mr. Marcus Elten, Assessment specialist in the Coordinated Assessment Section of OCHA Geneva. Mr. Elten was our guest to discuss both current challenges and opportunities in this field. From post-disaster sense-making to innovations in the field of assessment to initiatives such as the Digital Humanitarian Network and the concept of the “intelligence tent”, our expert shared his insight views on the field of post disaster assessment and answered questions from the audience. For further questions, please post them in the Facebook event on the UNDAC Talks page .

This video is brought to you by the UN Office of Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs's Emergency Services Branch and Field Coordination Support Section. The webinar was moderated by Mr. Peter Muller, UNDAC System Manager and directed by Anisha Choubey.
