Environmental Sector Handover Kicks off, from ARC to FSDS

Handover process started on this Tuesday 19th January 2016 with a deep analysis of the whole activities and responsibilities held by the American Refugee Committee as an organization that was in charge of the sector of environment protection in Refugee camps. Accomplished activities, and in dept actions were accessed to get an overview of the challenges and possible solutions.

Generally American Refugee committee has been doing well in handling problems with environmental crisis in and around refugee camps, but some major issues yet need to be provided with more and emergent interventions.

"The focus is going to be kept on the most severe problems highlighted to provide long lasting solutions of environmental challenges in and around refugee camps." He noted
