The Government of Turkey is the main responder to the emergency. Under the leadership of the central government, a field coordination structure is established at the governorate level, with the provincial governors taking the lead in field coordination, with the field presence of AFAD, DGMM and other concerned ministries. 3RP partners are providing inputs to these government coordination meetings.
