According to the Enpi website (www.enpi-info.eu), on day one, Tunisia's civil protection authorities will illustrate the lessons learned from the management of the humanitarian crisis caused by the massive flow of more than 350,000 refugees seeking shelter and protection from the conflict in Libya in 2011.
Workshop participants will try to set out specific roles for the different national and international agencies involved and will examine possible organisational measures for improving coordination among national and international players.
On day two, the operational aspects of migration crisis management will be addressed, such as tools and best practices for planning temporary shelters, camp management and minimum standards of assistance. The 5 million euros PPRD South Programme (Programme for Prevention, Preparedness and Response to Natural and Man-made Disasters), managed by a consortium led by the Italian Civil Protection Department together with the French, Algerian, Egyptian Civil Protection Authorities and the United Nations International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UNISDR), is organising training workshops dealing with risks in the region such as wild fires, technological disasters, floods, earthquakes, epidemics and drought, among others.
