2013 Advisory Group on Environmental Emergencies
The Advisory Group on Environmental Emergency (AGEE) is a dynamic forum to showcase experiences and innovations in improving prevention, preparedness and response to environmental emergencies, and for advocating the integration of environmental concerns into humanitarian action . Held every two years, the AGEE brings together key government, industry, academic and non-governmental representatives –policy makers, environmental experts, and disasters managers – keen to share their expertise, knowledge and lessons learned.
The AGEE provides a unique opportunity for emergency managers, responders and concerned stakeholders to discuss the way forward for improving partnerships, advocacy, capacity building, international governance, operational modalities in environmental emergencies and integrating environmental concerns into humanitarian action.
The agenda for the 2013 AGEE forum included stimulating discussions and ideas for improving partnerships, advocacy, international governance and strengthening capacity, as well as operational modalities for preparedness and response to environmental emergencies and mainstreaming environment in humanitarian action.
