The Emergency Capacity Building (ECB) Project was a global initiative implemented jointly by six international humanitarian organizations. In Indonesia, the ECB consortium consists of CARE International, Catholic Relief Services, Mercy Corps, Oxfam GB, Save the Children, International Medical Corps and World Vision Indonesia. The ECB Project in Indonesia started in 2005 and officially ended in August 2013. However, members of the ECB Indonesia consortium agreed and are committed to continuing the partnership and collaboration that has been well established under the ECB project. The purpose of maintaining the partnership is to strengthen the capacity of the ECB members in emergency response and preparedness programming through coordinated effort in emergency assessments and response, sharing of information and/or resources as appropriate, as well as through various joint activities to improve the capacity of the Parties’ staff and local partners in emergency response programming.
