In an ever more volatile world, direct and indirect man-made crises (wars, climate change, etc.) and natural disasters mean that the need for disaster management will only increase. Some organisations may only be able to respond to a one off, or wish to test the waters before committing to a longer term engagement in the humanitarian setting. It can be expensive in such cases to set up one's own infrastructure in the country, or to maintain permanent and significant capacity to respond. Other organisations may have the funds but not the capacity to implement in (yet another) humanitarian hotspot. Temporary and/or ad hoc humanitarian operational capacity is required by many organisations, in many cases.
Osman Consulting offers the option of supporting your organisation in establishing one-off or longer term relief programmes and projects, with an emphasis on situations of complex emergencies. OC can also provide assistance with assessments, ongoing management and final evaluations of projects and programmes, especially in complex settings.
Considering the complexities of protracted disasters, under the service of humanitarian operational management, OC also implement seasonal projects on behalf of clients in conflict-affected areas around the world, for example Ramadan and Qurbani projects.
In implementing such assignments, OC of course adheres to industry best practice (e.g. Sphere, INEE, People in Aid, etc.) as relevant, appropriate and feasible.
