  • Since 2004, Sahana has been successfully deployed by national authorities and NGOs to cope with the aftermath of several major disasters, from Asia to the Americas, as well as for emergency preparedness and ongoing assistance projects. Recently, Sahana was deployed for use in response to the massive earthquakes in Haiti and Chile.
  • Whilst often a Disaster is the trigger to install Sahana, it is better to do it during the Preparedness phase.
  • Sahana has been adopted as a national disaster response system in both the Philippines and Indonesia and was used last year to assist the victims of typhoons in those countries and several others. In the US, Sahana has been adopted by the City of New York to help manage resources for its all-hazards sheltering plan, and is part of a program in Bethesda, Maryland to provide emergency services for a mass-casualty event.
  • Other student projects at Trinity, RPI & other universities
  • The future is Mobile. OpenDataKit allows easy creation of Android applications.
