EHA Connect – Integrating Environment in Humanitarian Action

Tool

EHA Connect is a tool developped by the UN Environment/OCHA Joint Unit which brings the humanitarian and environmental communities together to support environmentally sustainable disaster management. The tool helps environmental actors engage in the disaster space and humanitarians develop more resilient emergency management systems.

The website is a unique digital tool spanning the humanitarian-environment nexus. It allows environmental actors to get involved in the disaster management space and humanitarian actors to mainstream environmental considerations in preparedness, response and recovery. It is also the first comprehensive online repository of environment in humanitarian action (EHA) tools and guidance and was produced as part of the Coordination of Assessments of Environment in Humanitarian Action Initiative.

EHA Connect responds to the highlighted need for connection between environmental and humanitarian actors in order for them to maximise their collaboration for better quality humanitarian action for both people and the environment.
