Webinar Report - Herat Earthquake Response (2024)

On February 20, 2024, the Danish Refugee Council’s Diaspora Programme hosted the webinar "Afghan Diaspora Response to Natural Disasters: The Herat Earthquakes”. The series of devastating earthquakes that struck the Western province of Herat affected around 4,200 people, leaving an enormous need for relief efforts (UN OCHA, 2023). In the national context of a 1,3 billion dollar funding gap, the webinar explored how Afghan diaspora organisations and local humanitarian organisations swiftly mobilized and collaborated to provide immediate relief as well as longer-term support to the affected communities.
