Think tanks can assist govt in organizing PM’s Corona Relief Tigers
ISLAMABAD: PM’s Special Assistant on National Security Division and Strategic Policy Planning Dr Moeed Yusuf has said that various think tanks could assist the government in organizing the ‘PM’s Corona Relief Tigers’ volunteers and their training in the light of the current crisis.
Speaking at an online meeting titled “Training of Corona Relief Tigers Force” organized by Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI), Dr Moeed said that a national database containing individual level details of volunteers regarding their qualification, skills and location needs to be automated using a management information system, said a press statement issued here.
Dr Moeed Yusuf further stressed the need for a real-time dashboard which can be used to track engagement with communities. This exercise will be important for rapid learning and will also identify any mistakes being committed, he added.
SDPI Executive Director Abid Qaiyum Suleri said that think tanks and academic institutions can mobilize their networks for providing training modules and guidelines for the volunteers as well as the trainers, through IT-based modes such as short info-graphics and documentaries. – APP
