How to avoid organisational chaos during a crisis meeting…!
|A crisis meeting is a necessary evil; any experienced person will second this.
Stress, lack of time and the impact of decisions are, among others, a number of elements that make such a situation complicated.

Food Security helps its members by:
- Organising simulated exercises
- Providing advisors in crisis situations
