DEMAC Advisory Board

The DEMAC Advisory Board consists of a permanent group of representatives from the conventional humanitarian systems (IOM, UNHCR, OCHA, Save the Children, DRC, UNDP, ECHO) and diaspora representatives. DEMAC plans to welcome additional members in 2019 to ensure additional relevant expertise and representation from each target diaspora.

Objective

The members are following DEMAC project progress and activities, and discussing project findings with regard to relevance and validity at policy level. Recommendations from Advisory Board meetings are informing further programming and ensuring relevance of activities in pursuit of the project goal: to enhance the effectiveness of humanitarian response at crises onset through improved communication, coordination and coherence between conventional and diaspora-led humanitarian action.
