Conflict remains the main driver of humanitarian needs, yet due to the elevated degree of (perceived or actual) risks associated with these types of crises, companies tend to be less involved than in addressing natural hazards. Consequently, collective private sector action in manmade disaster contexts, including complex emergencies, remains underexplored and limited to certain sectors.
This toolkit provides a framework and practical tips for private sector networks to translate manmade disaster contexts into an engagement strategy that fits the capabilities of network participants, efficiently channel private sector capabilities and support governments and the humanitarian community.
This guidance material is downloadable here in English, with translations available in French and Spanish.
