Emergency Handbook, 4th ed. (UNHCR) [access]
- The former print versions of this Handbook have now been replaced by an interactive digital edition: "This edition of the Emergency Handbook has been completely redesigned. The digital publication channel - in the form of a website, offline USB stick version and mobile applications - allows UNHCR to keep the content updated all the time, and to distribute updates to users in real time. The content has been completely re-organised and updated to reflect current policies and good practices. It brings more attention to out-of-camp emergency response, covers all aspects of UNHCR-led refugee emergency preparedness and response, UNHCR’s involvement in IDP emergencies, and describes current inter-agency leadership and coordination systems, including the Refugee Coordination Model and UNHCR’s responsibilities within the Inter Agency Standing Committee (IASC) context."
