It's not often that the entire Global Emergency Operations team finds themselves in the same place at the same time. By design we are scattered across the globe, serving as a standing resource that can be quickly mobilized to augment Mercy Corps' overall ability to respond to an emergency.

Once a year we do try and take advantage of a lull in the hurricane season, or a gap between contentious elections, to meet and discuss next year's goals and lessons learned from past responses.

Until next year, we'll remain on the move.
