    • Making Chaos Manageable “No innovation matters more than that which saves lives”Avelino J. Cruz, Jr., Secretary of National Defense of the Philippines on the use of Sahana following disastrous mudslides in 2005 SahanaCamp NYC
    • Disaster Trends World’s urban population will reach 6.4 billion by 2050 (that’s 70% of the world’s projected population of 9.2 billion) - United Nations, World Urbanization Prospects, 2007 World’s population and economic centers are concentrated in “vulnerable cities near earthquake faults, on river deltas or along tropical coasts.” - the Economist, January 14, 2012 Growing vulnerability to to an increased incidence of costly disasters By 2050 the city populations exposed to tropical cyclones or earthquakes will more than double, rising from 11% to 16% of the world’s population. - United Nations & World Bank, Natural Hazards, UnNatural Disasters: The Economics of Effective Prevention, 2010 By 2070, seven of the ten greatest urban concentrations of economic assets that are exposed to coastal flooding will be in the developing world (vs. none in 2005). Assets exposed to flooding will rise from 5% of the world GDP to 9%. - OECD, Ranking Port Cities with High Exposure and Vulnerability to Climate Extremes : Exposure Estimates, 2007 Global annual disaster spending will triple to $185 billion by 2100 - United Nations & World Bank, Natural Hazards, UnNatural Disasters: The Economics of Effective Prevention, 2010 Spending on urban infrastructure to approach $350 trillion over next 30 years. - Booz & Co., Reinventing the City to Combat Climate Change, 2010 2011 was costliest year ever for disasters (earthquakes in Japan & New Zealand, flooding in China, Australia & Thailand, tornadoes in US). Five of ten costliest disasters have occurred in last five years. 20% of aid is now spent responding to disasters; only 0.7% is spent on mitigation. President Obama declared record 99 disaster declarations in 2011. - the Economist, January 14, 2012March 21, 2012 DISASTER ROUNDTABLE 13 SahanaCamp NYC

    • Disasters are A Growth IndustryThere is both Opportunity And Responsibility SahanaCamp NYC
    • What is a Disaster?“A disaster is a serious disruption of the functioning of asociety, causing widespread human, material orenvironmental losses which exceeds the ability of theaffected society to cope using only its own resources” - Source: UNDP“Any Event or Circumstance (happening with or withoutwarning) that causes or threatens death or injury,disruption to the community on such a scale that theeffects cannot be dealt with by the emergency services,local authorities and other organizations as part of theirnormal day to day activities” - UK Home Office SahanaCamp NYC
    • Aftermath of DisastersThe trauma caused by waiting tobe found or find the next of kinCoordinating all aid groups andhelping them to operateeffectively as oneManaging the multitude ofrequests from the affected regionand matching them effectively tothe pledges of assistanceTracking the location of alltemporary shelters, camps, etc. SahanaCamp NYC 17
    • Tasks Facing RespondersSearch and Rescue Tracing MissingEvacuation PersonsSetting up Shelters Trauma CounselingEffective Distribution Assuring Security ofof Aid Affected AreasManagement of Donor Protecting Childrenand Donations Rehabilitation Life Saving decisions need to be made fast! The best decisions are the most informed ones SahanaCamp NYC 18
    • How Can Technology Help?Scalable management of information No stacks of forms and files to manageEfficient distribution of information Accessibility of information on demandAutomatic collation and calculation No delay for assessments and calculationsLive situational awareness Reports are updated live as data is entered SahanaCamp NYC 19
    • Sahana Software FoundationThe Sahana Software Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profitorganization dedicated to the mission of saving lives byproviding information management solutions that enableorganizations and communities to better prepare for andrespond to disasters.We develop free and open source software and provideservices that help solve concrete problems and bringefficiencies to disaster response coordination betweengovernments, aid organizations, civil society and disastersurvivors themselves. SahanaCamp NYC 20
    • What is Free and Open Source Software (FOSS)?The code is openly availablefor anyone to use and modify SahanaCamp NYC 21

    • Core Capabilities: Track People, Places and ThingsOrganization, Staff &Volunteer Registry Understanding 4W: “Who What Where When”: Maintains data (contacts, services) of groups, organizations, staff, and volunteers responding to the disaster, including training and skills information.Missing Persons /Disaster Victims Registry Helps track and find missing and found, deceased, injured and displaced people and families SahanaCamp NYC 24
    • Core Capabilities:Track NeedsRequests, Assets andResource Management Manages requests, assessments and reports and helps match commitments for support, donations, available assets and supplies through to fulfillmentGeospatial Analysis Provides situational awareness of all important locations to the disaster response, such as shelters, hospitals, warehouses, incident reports, and assessments.

    • The NewDisaster Information Environment SahanaCamp NYC
    • Haiti Earthquake & The “New Information Environment”New information and communication technologies, new information providers, and newinternational communities of interest emerged during the Haiti earthquake responsethat will forever change how humanitarian information is collected, shared, andmanaged. Humanitarian responders used social networking media, mobile phone textmessaging, open source software applications, and commercial satellite imagery more thanever before. Outside of the established international humanitarian community, volunteers andparticipatory reporters from the affected population became new sources of data andinformation. Humanitarian organizations, host governments, and the donor communitywill all need to adapt to this new information environment. US Department of State Humanitarian Information Unit, White Paper: Haiti Earthquake: Breaking New Ground in the Humanitarian Information Landscape, July 2010New partners are offering faster, more effective means of analyzing an ever-increasingvolume and velocity of data. The challenge ahead is how to create an effective interfacebetween these resources, and create an eco-system where each actor understands its role. Itwill not be easy. Volunteer and technical communities (V&TCs) like OpenStreetMap,Sahana and CrisisMappers approach problems in ways that challenge the status quo. UN Foundation, Disaster Relief 2.0: The Future of Information Sharing in Humanitarian Emergencies, 2011 SahanaCamp NYC
    • The New Disaster Information EnvironmentGovernment & Emergency Services relief capacity hasbeen exceeded or crippledTo meet response requirements, the boundary of theeffort extends to external groups (NGOs, civil society,foreign aid, UN agencies)Core Decision Makers need to consult a wider group andgather information from nontraditional “uninitiated”sources for better Situational Awareness CROWDSOURCING & SOCIAL MEDIA OPEN SOURCE & OPEN STANDARDS SahanaCamp NYC 31
