Ireland’s Rapid Response Initiative
Ireland's Humanitarian Standby Roster, the Rapid Response Corps, is currently closed for recruitment.
Under Ireland's Rapid Response Initiative, we regularly deploy highly-skilled and experienced individuals from our Rapid Response Corps roster to work as surge capacity with Ireland's UN Stand-by partners as part of their humanitarian and emergency response efforts. The Rapid Response Corps (RRC) currently comprises over 120 experts with specialised skills in logistics, engineering, water and sanitation, humanitarian coordination, protection and other areas. Most have worked extensively overseas in humanitarian and/or development settings.
Individual members of the Corps are deployed at the request of those UN humanitarian agencies with which Ireland has concluded formal bilateral Standby Agreements under the UN Stand-by Partnership Programme. These four UN agencies are the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the World Food Programme (WFP), UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF).
Since September 2007, over 380 deployments have been made from Ireland's Rapid Response Corps. The majority have deployed to crises in Africa, Central & Southern Africa, and others have deployed to crises in the Middle East, and to sudden onset crises in Haiti, the Philippines & Nepal.
