OPTIMAL SHELTER AID AFTER A DISASTER

Recent initiatives on efficient data gathering have resulted in programs as the UNHCR information management project. The program has a focus on mapping and optimizing data gathering when assessing after a disaster. Creating a uniform format that can be used by the various actors performing assessments and translating the results into maps and graphs are the results of this project.

In all sectors including post disaster shelter aid, the assessments however, can be used for decision making. Clear decision rules are then needed.
These rules can best be implemented by a machine, by military or when working with professionals with optimal training in aid and the insurance of optimal post disaster stress treatment.

In this paper we describe a decision making tool and a case study for military short stay housing. We conclude that a clear procedure, professional approach and discipline can be of aid in chaotic post disaster situations.
