Urban Competency Framework

The Urban Competency Framework for Humanitarian Action (UCF) outlines the competencies and accompanying behaviours that underpin effective humanitarian action in urban crises. It includes competencies that are: Contextual: competencies arising from the specific nature of urban areas and urban crises;  Humanitarian: core competencies required in all humanitarian settings. The humanitarian competencies are drawn from the Core Humanitarian Competency Framework and adapted to highlight the specific ways in which they apply in urban contexts.
