Sphere Applications During the COVID-19 Pandemic Webinar

United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) | Aug 2020

InterWorks facilitated a one-hour webinar, “Sphere Applications During the COVID-19 Pandemic”, on 4 August 2020 for the UNHCR Regional Centre for Emergency Preparedness – eCentre.

As a pilot project, the intent of this initiative was to focus on a short, relatively simple-to-conduct webinar that would be of value to UNHCR and partners. The overall webinar design, preparation, and facilitation of case-study presenters was done by InterWorks with technical support and webinar invitation and hosting services provided by the eCentre.

The webinar was designed to achieve the following stated objectives:

  • Update one another on issues relating to the application of Sphere Standards during the COVID-19 pandemic through sharing short case studies
  • Build experience-sharing networks within our community of practice
  • Raise emergency preparedness issues that need further discussion in Asia and the Pacific region.

The theme and contents were very interesting and helpful as it was connected to the important issues these days.
