CBi Network Foundation Guide

The Network Foundation Guide is designed to assist in the establishment of new private sector networks for disaster preparedness, response and recovery, and to support the activities of existing networks. It aims to ensure that new founders and existing networks consider an important set of key questions to build a firm foundation, landscape their context, establish a strong organizational and financial model, and develop their programming.
