UPS Supports UNHRD’s Rapid Response TeamTue, 2015-06-02 16:22
The UPS Foundation is generously supporting UNHRD’s Rapid Response Team (RRT), allowing the development and delivery of a RRT training in 2015. In addition to procuring, storing and sending emergency items for its Partners, UNHRD also provides them with crucial technical assistance for specialized logistics services, such as supporting the management of airport operations, warehouse installation and management in emergency operations. A key element of each deployment is capacity building of local staff in these areas.
Using UPS’ contribution, UNHRD will work with a team of experts to develop a tailored training module, and train staff from WFP, UNHRD, UNHRD partners, and the private sector this year. This training will help ensure that human resources and service requirements are matched for future emergency responses, and that equipment is set-up faster to support the operations.
