Item description for Humanitarian Assistance in Disaster Situations: A Guide for Effective Aid (PAHO Occasional Publication) by Pan American Health Organization...

A hurried response that is not based on an impartial assessment only contributes to chaos. It is better to wait until real needs have been assessed.. It is more economical, appropriate and hygienic to buy new articles locally than to send used items.Donors should not compete among themselves to satisfy the more visible needs of the affected country.Emergency assistance should complement -rather than duplicate- the measures used by the affected country." These are some examples of the practical advice and recommendations offered in the Guide for Effective Aid. It provides strong evidence that humanitarian assistance can considerably benefit a country ravaged by disaster if it responds with real needs. Likewise, when responding with unsolicited donations, or when donors have a misguided view of those needs, it can also become a burden. This new Guide combines and updates several publications that PAHO has published in the last 15 years. We hope their recommendations and principles will help donors and beneficiaries in making their decisions to maximize the benefits in the short and long terms for the countries affected by natural and complex disasters.
