Denver, CO (PRWEB) September 30, 2014
Global Food Exchange™ is pleased to announce a Strategic Trading Partnership with the International Disaster Response Network (IDRN). The International Disaster Response Network is a decentralized, distributed network/community of individuals, working together for a common cause linked by common methodology and terminology, that allows members to connect with each other from anywhere in the world. The IDRN serves as a framework for networking and collaboration and provides a venue for information sharing in times of disaster and crises. A GFE Strategic Trading Partner is a pre-approved relief organization with exclusive access to the GFE trading platform, allowing for the immediate acquisition and deployment of critical relief supplies from strategic locations around the world.
The goal of the IDRN is to create community and collaboration among IDRN member individuals and aid & relief organizations to connect, learn, and work together. Mike McCausland, founder of Sustainable Communities Worldwide, and the IDRN have trained people and organizations in more than 50 countries around the world in disaster preparedness and response; totaling more than 9,000 "badged" IDRN responders worldwide. “When IDRN Community members share information during disasters, they create a common operating picture enabling all members to self-synchronize to the gaps, ensuring local needs are met,” adds McCausland. Global Food Exchange™ is proud to assist the IDRN members and their stakeholders with critical resource procurement, as these groups work to not only recover, but rebuild local communities following a disaster.
