Humanitarian Health Action

IASC strategy meeting humanitarian challenges in urban areas

The aim of this IASC Strategy is to recommend actions which humanitarian actors can take to make their responses to humanitarian crises in urban areas more effective and thereby save more lives and accelerate early recovery. Six strategic objectives and supporting actions are proposed which will enhance their expertise and operational capacities in urban areas. This Strategy further addresses and prioritizes the humanitarian challenges identified in the Initial IASC Strategy for Meeting Humanitarian Challenges in Urban Areas of 2009.
