Part of sustainable development is managing conflict and disaster events. Much of this work is in the field, giving humanitarian aid for food, medical and psychosocial care, clean water, shelter, and other necessary and important resources, as well as training community leaders, medical professionals, and other key first responders to deal with crises and disaster events with quick and effective response methods. These events vary by region and even country, so our professionals in this field know basics of humanitarian response and disaster/conflict management and are able to learn about specific issues facing the counties in which they work.
