Case for emergency response teams

I'm already working on this, and have had input from military, DRR, response, intel and CRM people on it. There are various single issue networks, but yes a civilian global response system, with surge capacity and comms teams is badly needed.

If interested to contribute and not just discuss, call me!

What are effective ways to help Ukrainians right now?

Michael hi and I'll try to read that. 

Just one major concern: in war and humanitarian work the INT framework may not be sufficient/ideal as in a war  you also have to factor in urgency and cascading consequences if logistics supply is not set up promptly, even before you have certainty ...

e.g. if chemical protection masks and suits don't arrive before a toxic 'accident',  many may die 

... so there is a premium on prompt action as part of Critical Pathway Planning, and fine adjustments/discussions can happen in parallel rather than in the slow deliberative way one might normally want to do.

I find the level hard work too, so I practice in Facebook groups :-)
