Egyptian Red Crescent : National Disaster Response (NDRT) Mechanism

Demonstrations and civil violence which has plagued Egypt since 2011 required the development of First Aid Emergency Action Teams (EAT). This initiative whilst highly successful and ongoing has been some argue at the expense of the NDRT development. 

The challenge now is for ERC to also create a national response mechanism which is holistic, sustainable and well-resourced. Consideration will need to be given also to managing NDRT and EAT into a single national capability that is complimentary and integrated rather than as separate entities. 

This case study was commissioned by the IFRC Middle East North Africa (MENA) zone after a concept paper was received by the Egyptian Red Crescent to support the reestablishment of a National Disaster Response Team (NDRT).
