Dear All,

Laboratory of Information and Industrial Management at Tampere University of Technology  warmly invites you to attend a forum on “NGO-Business Partnerships in Disaster Relief and Development Initiatives” on November 19. Please find attached the agenda for the program.

“Global population growth, climate change, and the vulnerability of communities in high-risk areas, especially in low-income countries, increase the likelihood and impact of natural disasters (e.g., earthquakes, floods, and droughts) on people's lives, and local businesses, and global supply chains.  Effective response to the increasing number and complexity of disasters are beyond the capacity of most government agencies, firms, or humanitarian organizations. Individual humanitarian organizations typically do not possess the complete array of resources necessary (e.g., funding, time, and skills) to respond to all types of emergencies and meet all beneficiary needs. Thus, they cultivate partnerships, facilitating collaborative practices to prepare and respond more effectively.”

In this forum, researchers and practitioners share their recent findings and/or experiences related to business- humanitarian NGO partnerships in disaster relief and development initiatives.

For registration, please follow the below link by 12.11.2018:

We appreciate if you could circulate this information to your colleagues who could be interested.

Kind Regards,
