AFAD Trains Turkmenistan’s Red Crescent Society on Emergency Housing Services

Ashgabat, 15 October 2015 – Turkey’s Disaster and Emergency Management Authority (AFAD), in cooperation with the Turkish Red Crescent Society and UNHCR, conducted a two-day training session for the Turkmenistan Red Crescent Society staff on 14-15 October 2015.

The training session focused on the selection of camp sites as well as the construction and management of temporary housing centers. A delegation of AFAD experts shared their experiences with regard to the daily management of housing centers including security, education, healthcare and logistics services.

AFAD, which coordinates Turkey’s response to the Syrian refugee crisis, manages 25 temporary housing centers, where more than 275.000 people currently reside. Earlier this year, AFAD received the Best Public Service Award from the United Nations for developing AFKEN, a web-based urban management system used in temporary housing centers.
