Cross-Sector Language Guide
World Cares Center
This language guide is a working document that provides a starting point to foster enhanced communication between prominent disaster response actors. By presenting terms that are comply used but often have diverse meaning between and amongst members of the ecosystem of disaster relief, we begin the dialogue which provides a foundation for a more exhaustive common language guide. Additionally, this guide will provide a fundamental understanding of the disparate interpretations of terms and improve cross- sector communications.
