ACT members respond to a variety of types of emergency situations.
1. Sudden-onset emergencies such as natural disasters
2. Large-scale/global emergencies
3. Complex emergencies, where there are multi-sectoral needs
4. Protracted crises, such as long term war and instability that ‘normalises’ an emergency
Through its Appeal function ACT Alliance raises funds within its membership to meet the needs of communities in emergencies.
