The National Emergency Operation Center (NEOC) will held an NEOC Workshop on Thursday September 18, 2020 from 9:00am to 3:00pm on Eneko Island. The overall purpose of the NEOC workshop was address current gaps and areas in need of improvement, utilizing the COVID19 Tabletop Exercise (TTX) and Simulation results. It was also a time that the cluster leads and their coleads were able to look back at their TORs for NDC endorsement at a later date.

The Objectives of the workshop were:
1) Review TTX and Simulation Recommendations and action plans – update all progress – see attached (please read prior to the workshop)
2) Review all Terms of Reference (TOR) and update – ensuring that there are empowered co-leads
3) Review and solidify the communications flow and expectations between NDC and NEOC and the clusters – addressing the communications recommendations form the TTX and Simulation
4) Review Monitoring Framework for COVID-19 response and update, confirm regular schedule for reporting and presentation to NDC.  

The participants found the workshop productive and will continue to work towards strengthened coordination and communications.

The workshop was supported and facilitated by the International Organization for Migration.
