Hosted by ESB’s Field Coordination Support Section (FCSS), the workshop sought to contribute to the process of improving field coordination through lessons learned from recent emergencies, such as Nepal. Attendees from 24 organizations, including MapAction, International Humanitarian Partnership, Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), U.S. Forest Service International Programs and CartONG participated in a marketplace activity in which they were asked to foster discussion on significant challenges to the OSOCC, external recognition of the OSOCC, internal coordination and linkages with operational support partners.
