ABSTRACT
The article looks at the latest strategies of aid agencies for staffing in a crisis as they join the relief effort in Burma and China. The group of seven, one British and six U.S. organisations, set the launch date for their Emergency Capacity Building Project (ECB). Greater co-operation between agencies is a major theme proving especially important in Burma where agencies are working through others already in the area. Matt Bannerman, acting director of the ECB Project, discussed a joint training programme of the ECB.
