I think this is a brilliant concept. Without a doubt there is a disconnect within the disaster response machine of the AID communities. This is driven by politics, culture and procedure. I love the idea of the LOCAL focus penetrating and working to build the local economy in preparing for hazards rather than importing and tanking the economy after events happen. This pairs nicely with the Sphere Standards for Disaster Reponse.
