REA Stakeholder Workshop

25 and 26 October 2017, Washington, DC

The workshop will bring together key environmental and humanitarian stakeholders to engage and discuss options for improving coordination before and after disasters and conflicts, with a strong focus on the Rapid Environmental Assessment (REA). Emphasis will also be placed on links to other post-disaster/conflict environmental assessment methodologies. There will be an opportunity for stakeholders to share relevant work including examples of inter-sectoral partnerships and opportunities for collaboration, which will be useful for identifying entry points for enhanced coordination between environmental and humanitarian agencies.

Following a recent consultancy to scope options for content, approach, and structure to environmental assessment methodologies, and specifically the REA, the project team will report on the way forward. This will include recommendations for harmonizing the tool within broader humanitarian response and recovery assessment settings. Stakeholders will have the opportunity to provide feedback and to influence the direction of the work to ensure relevance.
