Message sent on behalf of Poland, INSARAG AEME Regional Co-Chair 2021 and host of the virtual INSARAG Global Meeting, 6 Oct

Dear INSARAG Network Members,

On behalf of Poland, the INSARAG Secretariat are pleased to invite you to the next INSARAG Global Meeting to be held virtually, and hosted by Poland, on 06 October from 13:00-16:00 CEST. This will be the 3rd Global Meeting which also coincides with the commemoration of 30 years of INSARAG. 

 The proposed agenda is provided in the attached draft concept note, which also includes a fuller outline of the prior meetings and engagements that will take place in the run up to, and during, the event.


The purpose of the event is to bring the network together to share expertise and best practices from across the world. In addition, members will be invited to strategize on how to implement the four Strategic Objectives outlined in the Warsaw Declaration and The Strategic Plan: Strengthening Quality Standards, Boosting Localisation, Advancing Flexible Response and Bolstering Partnerships. These Strategic Objectives provide a framework for the network moving forward for the next five years which will ensure that it matures and evolves to be fit for the future. The event will conclude with an endorsement of the Warsaw Declaration.

We very much look forward to seeing you there. We will be in contact shortly with formal invitations and connection details.
