The purpose of this manual is to provide simple, practical guidance on how to use the CI Toolkit for Emergency Response. The Toolkit includes resources and formats for emergency preparedness and response: organizational preparedness, needs assessment, situation reports (Sitreps), proposal templates, reporting, evaluation and audit. This manual is designed to help a national Caritas, CI member organizations, the CI supporting mechanism, regions and General Secretariat to effectively use these tools. It can be used at the time of an emergency, but preferably it should also be used before an emergency, to support the organisational preparedness for a response.
