Disaster Relief 2.0: The Future of Information Sharing in Humanitarian Emergencies reviews the different responses to the Haiti quake to extract learnings that can inform better collaboration between humanitarian systems and volunteer and technical communities.

Disaster Relief 2.0: The Future of Information Sharing in Humanitarian Emergencies

Publisher: United Nations Foundation, Vodafone Foundation and the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

Disaster Relief 2.0
Disaster Relief 2.0: The Future of Information Sharing in Humanitarian Emergencies analyzes how the humanitarian community and the emerging volunteer and technical communities worked together in the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, and recommends ways to improve coordination between these two groups in future emergencies. 

The report was commissioned by the United Nations Foundation and Vodafone Foundation Technology Partnership in collaboration with the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), and researched and written by a team at the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative.

The report explores how the international humanitarian system and volunteer and technical communities approached information management during the Haiti response and how these approaches differed and came
into tension. Based on this, the report offers guidelines for what an interface between the two communities might look like, and, to stimulate further dialogue, presents one prototype model for this missing interface.
