Groupe URD/DG ECHO - Climate and environment expertise mapping to support local and national organisations

Groupe URD is leading an initiative on mapping climate and environment services and resources that could help to implement commitments 1 and 2 of the Climate and Environment Charter for Humanitarian Organisations (i.e. adapting humanitarian response to the impacts of climate and environmental crisis/Maximizing the environmental sustainability of humanitarian activities).

The objective of this mission is to highlight the resources and services available to help national and small organisations implement the Charter and to analyse any obstacles that may prevent access to these resources to inform the Charter Secretariat and donors about the needs that exist.

Organisations interested to participate are invited by Groupe URD to fill out the below questionnaire:
