Really lovely to have a rare visit from Brett Burkhart, Disaster Operations Specialist @theOFDA today. Great to catch up and discuss plans for the 3rd year of our 4-year programme together.
MapAction was in Curaçao this week working with Preparedn International & others on a Caribbean Coast simulation exercise for #disastermanagement teams in #Curacao #Bonaire #Saba #Statia. We provided #GIS & #mapping support. Thanks to @theOFDA for supporting this work.
Humanitarian emergencies often strike without a warning, destroying lives within a matter of second.
In the immediate aftermath it’s crucial for disaster relief agencies to know where to start. Listen to this podcast with @mapaction to learn more
MapAction volunteer @iancoady is en route to our partner @AHACentre in Jakarta to support the response to #PODUL & #KAJIKI in #Lao which have caused floods across 6 provinces.
Ian will be mapping the latest situation and gaps in coverage to help get #aid where it's most needed.
