This introductory guide to VCA draws on ten years of experience within the Movement, to show how the process can be effectively used by National Societies to reinforce disaster preparedness within their communities, whilst linking this with other programmes and activities into a mutually reinforcing whole – as part of Strategy 2010 and towards the goals of the “Federation of the Future”. It is accompanied by three other practical guides: How to do VCA, VCA toolbox and VCA training.
This document discusses about:
- The purpose of VCA

Usage: Training, Monitoring and evaluation (M&E)
