THE NORTH AMERICAN HUMANITARIAN RESPONSE SUMMIT – September 26-27, 2017
Initial Convening Meeting
Synthesis Report: provides an overview of the context within which the North American Humanitarian Response Summit (NAHRS) process will take place, simulated catastrophic disaster response scenarios that can test the collaboration that would been needed amongst the participating entities (American Red Cross, Canadian Red Cross, Mexican Red Cross and their respective government counterparts) during a catastrophic response and an analysis of the existing fora already engaged, or previously recently engaged, in efforts of relevance to NAHRS. A policy scan is incorporated as a part of this synthesis report (summarized in the main body of the synthesis report with the full policy scan provided as an annex) to assist in identifying those policy issues most of relevance to this process. Recommendations to support the NAHRS project are provided based all of the available data, related findings and analysis. All combined, this synthesis report is intended to serve as the underpinning documentation and research needed to initiate the NAHRS.
