Emergency Capacity Building Project (ECB)

(Unverified non-profit organisation)

Emergency Capacity Building Project (ECB) is a collaborative effort of seven humanitarian agencies (CARE, Catholic Relief Services, Mercy Corps, Oxfam, Save the Children and World Vision) aimed at improving the speed, effectiveness and delivery of humanitarian response programs. The ECB implements programs in one region and five countries known as consortia (Horn of Africa, Bolivia, Bangladesh, Indonesia and Niger). Over a two-year period, these agencies and their partners are addressing issues pertaining to staff capacity, accountability (primarily to affected populations), impact measurement, risk reduction, and the use of information and technology in emergencies. While seeking to improve the way the seven agencies respond to humanitarian crises, ECB is deeply committed to contributing to reform in the humanitarian sector as a whole. ECB will work closely with other humanitarian organisations and share findings widely.
