Discuss both the challenges and opportunities in transitioning from emergency response to development programming.

Building Back Better Responses

Model 4 Overview: The transition from emergency response to development can be rocky. How do agencies manage (or take advantage of) the shift in structures, funding, and expectations? Does the post-disaster context provide opportunities for development gains?

By the end of this module, students will be able to:

Discuss both the challenges and opportunities in transitioning from emergency response to development programming.


What are some of the biggest challenges in transitioning from emergency relief to development? How might the transition look different from the perspectives of international agency leadership; local staff; people affected by the emergency?

Please discuss the readings in the context of the course topic, your experiences. You can make comments or ask questions, as well as responding to what your classmates say.

This discussion requires two posts, an initial post and two response post. Later in the day will need to respond to two other posting. 100 words each so a total of 200 in responses to two other students. Total of 850- 950 words in discussion post, reference not included in the word counting. I will upload the required pdfs.
