WSICAO is a hub for the coordination and
consolidation of strategic resources for diverse safety, humanitarian and development
aid institutes and organizations of international scope.
Interlinked strategies and joint support of resources are also planned and
developed for the deployment of joint missions and programs on
one or more of the following:
Protection of Lives
Early Detection of Disaster Threats
Relief to the Internally Displaced
Reconstruction and Development Aid
WSICAO was created by and for diverse institutes and
organizations looking for sharing resources as well as to
exchange information and coordinate strategies. The
organization allows to consolidate and share or exchange specialized personnel as well as
and other resources placing each organization's strength in a
common pool to be equally shared by all member organizations for
better efficiency and enhanced results.
Resources shared at diverse levels
It is up to each member organization to decide which of their resources
will contribute to the common hub. It is also each member's decision to contribute (or use)
shared resources from time to time or to fully participate and contribute (or use) specific shared
resources all the time. Some of the resources available to use for member organizations on a permanent
or temporary basis are:
Projects and Operations Databases
Public Relations Coordination
Media Relations Coordination
Operational Joint Units
Technologies and Systems
WSICAO empowers its member organizations, day after day,
allowing them to dedicate to what is most important for them,
while being able to access all auxiliary and support services as
well as specialized resources. This results in lower operational
costs and reduces also the quantity of dedicated personnel of their
own that the member organizations need to deploy, avoiding unnecessary
redundancies on the field.
WSICAO is a joint hub of specialized resources in use by organizations dedicated to the protection
of lives worldwide
When it is all about lives, efficiency and versatility are the critical factors. The number of lives saved is directly related to these two
components. This is specially true during First Response to situations where large number of lives are in peril.
Efficiency is not only dictated by good preparation, good training and capable personnel. If that personnel has no access to suitable and specialized resources,
results will be less than good. In situations to which diverse organizations or agencies respond simultaneously, exists sometimes overlapping
and very often redundancy of some resources while a lack of others may become evident.
The access to a hub of specialized resources and joint
units already prepared to work in perfect symbiosis
provides the versatility and efficiency so needed in situations involving the protection of lives, avoiding redundancies and making use of a
vast pool of resources contributed by multiple organizations to the joint effort.
