Sahana is a Free and Open Source Disaster Management system. "It is a web based collaboration tool that addresses the common coordination problems during a disaster from finding missing people, managing aid, managing volunteers, tracking camps effectively between Government groups, the civil society (NGOs) and the victims themselves."

I found this site recently and thought others might be interested. The Global Disaster Alert and Coordination System, "provides near real-time alerts about natural disasters around the world and tools to facilitate response coordination, including media monitoring, map catalogues and Virtual On-Site Operations Coordination Centre". Don't sign up for the SMS alerts unless you need it though (We don't want to overload their SMS gateway). One nice feature is the RSS feed which can be loaded into your favourite RSS reader. I was interested to know if there are any standby emergency aid workers out there who use a similar notification system. If so let us know. Also for those computer nerds out there they are using a standards based XML messaging format for emergencies called CAP .

Aidmatrix encourages you to support relief efforts for the recent Bangladesh Cyclone. Click on the Above link or visit http://vad.aidmatrix.org/vadxml.cfm?driveid=2437
When donating, you will be able to see a SAMPLE LIST of items and prices benchmarked from some of the world's leading humanitarian aid organizations, from their varied relief operations. The actual items/services provided and their actual costs will vary from this list, as actual needs are still being assessed. This list will evolve over time, to reflect the changing needs of the relief effort.

The Livestock Emergency Guidelines and Standards (LEGS) are a set of international guidelines for livelihoods-based livestock responses to humanitarian crises. Following the process and format of the Sphere guidelines, LEGS is being developed through consultation with a wide group of interested organizations and individuals. LEGS covers a range of livelihoods-based responses, including destocking, accelerated offtake, veterinary services, supplementary feed, water, shelter and restocking. A ‘consultation’ draft was placed on the LEGS website during July and August for comment and feedback. Based on these responses, a ‘field test’ draft is now being produced, which will be tested in real-time emergencies as well as through a series of simulation workshops. The draft will then be finalized and LEGS is due to be published during 2008.

Hello. I'm new to the Network. I do not currently work in development. I am studying with the OU for an MSc in Development Management and I am in the final project phase. My chosen topic is looking at bringing the management of diabetes during natural and other humanitarian disasters into the 'mainstream' of aid provision.

Education in Emergencies: The Gender Implications
According to many research findings women and girls are disproportionately affected in times of conflicts and natural disasters. The ominous impact of such emergency situations among girls is the apparent lack of access to schooling. This advocacy brief published by UNESCO describes ways to overcome barriers to education faced by women and girls in emergency situations. Such strategies include: locating schools closer to girls’ homes and away from dangers such as soldiers’ quarters; involving community members in ensuring safe travel to and from school; pro-actively recruiting and training women as teachers; providing feeding programs or rations for girl students, among many others.
