Regular monitoring enables the IGEM to determine if state-based improvements in emergency management arrangements are effective and sustainable in the long-term, and are actively helping to keep communities safe.
IGEM has two broad monitoring activities:
- implementation monitoring to track the implementation of agreed actions and recommendations
- performance monitoring to proactively identify better practice, opportunities for improvement, risks and trends for specific parts or arrangements within the sector.
All IGEM’s assurance activities are guided by the Assurance Framework for Emergency Management which provides the foundation for a coordinated and collaborative approach to sector-wide assurance.
