Feba UK is a member of the Micah Network
A number of Micah Network members have expressed a need to build local capacity to deal with disasters. In response, Micah Network is committed to building Disaster Management capacity of local actors, including Christian communities as well as to establish mechanisms to coordinate resources and advocacy initiatives. A disaster management forum has been established for disaster management practitioners to share knowledge, information and resources on disaster management.
The Micah Network members are committed to Integral Mission including working alongside local communities and churches. It is proposed the Micah Network will support the Disaster Management (DM) capacity of local actors, including local communities and churches. The objectives are to
Build the capacity of local communities and churches to assist vulnerable people to prevent, prepare for and respond to the impact of disasters.
Support Micah Network member agencies in each country towards a coordinated high quality disaster-management capability.
Facilitate effective mechanisms for Micah Network members to respond multi-laterally to requests for assistance in cases of major disaster.
Establish an effective Micah Network forum of members engaged in DM advocacy; and ensuring listening and learning.
In order to support the outworking of these objectives it is proposed to establish a Micah Network Disaster Management Forum to create a space for practitioners from the Global South and the Global North to discuss their work on DRR and disaster response.
