CIFAL rapid response training task force invites York faculty members

Group Of Students Meeting For Tutorial With Teacher

CIFAL York is working with Architects Without Borders (ASF) to mobilize a rapid response training task force to examine the situation in Turkey and Syria after the devastating Feb. 6 earthquake.

CIFAL and ASF will work together to identify immediate training needs for post-earthquake relief and the recovery/reconstruction phase. The rapid response training will focus on various aspects and target a range of audiences including the public, service providers and volunteers (architects, planners, engineers, designers, etc.) involved in post-disaster relief, recovery and reconstruction, particularly for the most vulnerable areas and groups.

CIFAL York is seeking assistance from York University faculty members. Those interested in joining the task force and being part of the training team should contact CIFAL York Director Ali Asgary at Learn more about the opportunity here.
