Presentation Title: Lessons learned and best practices in Humanitarian & Emergency Systems.
In recent years, two emergency events - South Asia Tsunami and Hurricane Katrina saw the deployment of Humanitarian systems to aid in the relief efforts. This presentation will give an overview of the event scenarios, lessons learned and best practices in developing and deploying such systems. In addition, the presentation will describe a system currently being developed by InSTEDD for deployment at the UNICEF's Operation Centre (OPSCEN) for Emergency management. Please note that this presentation shows how any system platform can be used during emergencies & humanitarian events.
