Key issues

This note summarises key themes arising out of the workshop hosted by the Council in December 2016 and the background paper commissioned for that workshop. It highlights the key challenges and what action might be needed in the following areas:

  • ‘Research’ as an intrinsic element of emergency response
  • Collaboration and engagement
  • Priority setting and who decides
  • How to conduct research: do the ‘usual rules’ apply?
