The COVID-19 pandemic has enabled the Catalyst Group to build a strong and dynamic pan-India multidisciplinary network with a variety of expertise. This presents the potential to build the resilience of the vulnerable and their institutions in their everyday emergencies and to be ready for future humanitarian crises (climate & health). This has led to the #COVIDActionCollab transitioning to Community Action Collab, a ‘spring to action’ ready humanitarian emergency platform.
Community Action Collab (CAC) is a dynamic humanitarian emergency platform that builds the resilience of Vulnerable People and their institutions in their everyday emergencies and is ready for future humanitarian crises (climate & health). The platform orchestrates and influences the actions and decisions of 360 partners, governments and other alliances, enabling them to solve issues affecting the vulnerable and ensuring access to critical livelihood, health, social protection and climate impact solutions.
The COVID-19 pandemic has created global health and societal emergency. Yet, it has also provided humanity with an incredible opportunity to make our world a better place.
- Humanitarian and outbreak response over the years has taught us that:
- Responses need to be people-centric, localised and effective
- Resources – People, Money and Materials – should flow to places required
- Information and coordination needs special attention
To respond to COVID-19, WE have come together as a Collaborative with expertise in the areas of Public Health, Medicine, Humanitarian Emergencies, Engineering, Technology, Sociology, Behavioral Science, Mental Health, Migration, Financing and more.
WE are individuals, organisations and networks representing Public, Private, Civil Society, Academia and several other sectors.
We believe that pooling our expertise and resources empowers us to respond effectively to COVID-19, together.
