UNDAC deployment in Paraguay

At the request from the United Nations Resident Coordinator in Paraguay, FCSS deployed an UNDAC team in April to support the response to the floods that strongly hit in the country. The team, supported by two MapAction staff, conducted needs assessments using the MIRA methodology, provided crucial information management support by setting up a situation room within UNDP and generating key information products, including maps and presentations. The team also fully incorporated environmental considerations into the needs assessment. The assessment and coordination support provided by the UNDAC team to the Humanitarian Country Team was instrumental in updating the Strategic response plan.
