Guidelines for Remote Rapid Response Support

The current and predicted global travel restrictions being imposed globally as result of the Covid-19 pandemic is having a significant impact in our surge capacity in times that call for increased support. As a result, alternative ways of working need to be explored and put in place. Remote support should be promoted, and in-country presence should be properly justified.

This document aims at providing some basic guidance to surge personnel, NS, and IFRC offices, on how this arrangement can be triggered and maintained. The first part consist on information on how the request and mission will work. The second part consist of a checklist to guide the decision on requesting remote support.
