In 2003, Oxfam-GB, Save the Children-US, World Vision International, Catholic Relief Services, the International Rescue Committee, CARE International, and Mercy Corps formed the Inter-Agency Working Group (IWG) on Emergency Capacity Building. ECB is a collaborative effort of seven humanitarian agencies that are jointly tackling common problems in emergency response and preparedness. Over a two-year period, these agencies and their strategic partners are addressing issues pertaining to staff capacity, accountability (primarily to affected populations), impact measurement, risk reduction, and the use of information and technology in emergencies. While seeking to improve the way the seven agencies respond to humanitarian crises, ECB is deeply committed to contributing to reform in the humanitarian sector as a whole. ECB will work closely with other humanitarian organizations and share findings widely.

I am looking for a training manual on community level light search and rescue. This should include simple basic techniques tha can be carried out by laymen with hands or simple tools like rope, pick, shovels. The purpose is I want to train the community people in Nepal on community level light search and rescue without using hitech equipment and skill. This will help the community to search and rescue the victims at an instant of an event without waiting for the high trained rescuers to come. of course the team will come but it will be quite late and I the community need to take out the victims that are lightly trapped or evn on the surface itself.

Examples are population movements/migration; floods; technological disasters, hurricanes, etc.
