Base Camp Working Group meeting

The Base Camp WG covers much more than the name implies. It covers most all technical aspects of IHP’s work except ICT and medical (for those members that does this). The main areas for this WG, apart from actual camps for humanitarian staff and how these are implemented in the best possible way, are shelter, water, sanitation, electricity, security (of facilities), and logistics.

The next Base Camp WG meeting will be on 8 – 10 May. It has not yet been decided who will host it. The main topics will be:

  • IHP Office and Accommodation Handbook. IHP Office and Accommodation Handbook.
  • Green solutions in base camps and on missions in general.
  • Trainings and exercises.
  • Standards for working and living conditions in the field.
  • Exchange on knowledge and experience from missions etc.
