Publisher's Description of Sahana Disaster Management System

" A free open-source web-based disaster management system - finding missing people, managing aid and volunteers, tracking camps. "
- From Sahana Software Foundation

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.

Sahana is an integrated set of pluggable, web based disaster management applications that provide solutions to large-scale humanitarian problems in the aftermath of a disaster. Our aspirations are as follows:

* Primary: Help alleviate human suffering and help save lives through the efficient use of IT during a disaster
* Bring together a diverse set of actors from Government, Emergency Management, NGOs, INGOs, spontaneous volunteers and victims themselves in responding effectively to a disaster
* Empower the victims, responders, volunteer to better enable them to help themselves and others
* Protect victim data and reduce the opportunity for data abuse
* Provide a Free and Open Source solution end-to-end available to everyone

With the above aspirations, the main applications built into Sahana and problems they address so far are as follows:

* Missing Person Registry - Helping to reduce trauma by effectively finding missing persons
* Organization Registry - Coordinating and balancing the distribution of relief organizations in the affected areas and connecting relief groups allowing them to operate as one
* Request Management System - Registering and Tracking all incoming requests for support and relief upto fulfillment and helping donors connect to relief requirements
* Camp Registry - Tracking the location and numbers of victims in the various camps and temporary shelters setup all around the affected area
* Volunteer Management - Coordinate the contact info, skills, assignments and availability of volunteers and responders
