In December 2012,the Egyptian Red Crescent (ERC) and Swiss Red Cross (SRC) starteda project onInstitutional response preparedness and logistic capacity in disaster management.

The project aims at maximizing the effectiveness of disaster management and logistics as well as to improve the disaster risk reduc¬tion activities run by the ERC.

Thanks to the high level of engagement and active participation of ERC staff and volunteers and to the support of SRC logistic expert, ERC was able to review its multi-hazard contingency plan including the standardized operational procedures (SOP) through various workshops and seminars.
