MapAction in Haiti

In a humanitarian crisis, relief agencies need rapid answers to questions about 'where'. Where are the greatest needs? Where are the gaps that need to be filled? MapAction is a non-governmental organisation (NGO) that works in disaster zones providing frequently updated situation maps showing where relief help is most urgently needed. MapAction has run two missions in Haiti: in 2008 in response to a string of tropical storms that struck the north of the country; and in 2010 after the earthquake.

UN-OCHA – Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific

The Asia-Pacific region is one of the most disaster-prone regions in the world, with frequently occurring natural disasters including earthquakes, tsunamis, tropical storms, flooding, landslides and volcanic eruptions affecting millions of people every year. These events are becoming increasingly frequent and severe, worsened considerably by the effects of climate change and growing population density. Conflicts, political instability and pandemics in the region also have dire humanitarian consequences.
