International cooperation and coordination

International cooperation and coordination are important matters to consider when responding to an emergency, specially to ensure coherence in the management of risk of disasters. It is helpful to develop an understanding of existing treaties, conventions and other programmes that offer additional tools for use during and after emergency events. This is especially true in developing countries, where greater technical and humanitarian assistance may be required.
