Malaysia and many other countries have been experiencing huge floods. Massive flood struck (December 2014) the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia caused by heavy rain, overflowing rivers and unusual high tide from South China Sea. The worst floods in Malaysia for decades left more than thousands of homes destroyed and forced over 200,000 people to evacuate from the affected areas. Many towns and villages are completely cut off and emergency services are working around the clock to rescue people. Closer to date, last year (December 2021) another huge flood struck Hulu Langat.   We have government agencies, NGOs, community-based organizations, and people on the street come together and extend their helping hands.  What works, what doesn’t work? We came to realize that we should not only give rice to the victims who do not even have a stove and gas to cook. NGOs are inundated with an influx of volunteers and managing them is not easy.   What happened to all these lessons learnt, and the best practices during these relief operations? They are kept with the individuals, the relief organizations or within their groups. In this ‘Rising Above Flood Relief: The Best Practices’, we are gathering the practitioners, and the experts to share their experiences, lessons learnt in managing flood relief operations.   Join us in this Rising Above Flood Relief: The Best Practices to know more and share your opinion   Our speakers   KHAIRIL ANNUAR KHALID
