How prepared agencies are to respond to a disaster can often mean the difference between life and death for those affected. Improving preparedness means when a disaster strikes, agencies have the necessary resources for an immediate, effective and appropriate response, and the individuals responsible know how to use those resources.
The ALERT Project aims to contribute toward an improvement in effective delivery of humanitarian assistance to disaster-affected communities. The outcome of the project will be to increase emergency preparedness capacity in pilot countries and provide the humanitarian community with an information management system that facilitates an increased level of emergency preparedness and maintains their operational preparedness at a consistent and appropriate level. The system will be designed to be freely available to users/agencies and compatible with the wide range of humanitarian agencies irrespective of their size or mandate.
HelpAge International is leading a consortium of organisations in developing this information management system for disaster preparedness under the ALERT Project.
We are seeking a reputable company to develop the ALERT Information Management System. The product to be delivered is a fully operational, open platform and web-based software accessible from PCs equipped with an appropriate internet connection and web browser.
