Humanitarian Response Readiness Metric for More Effective Relief Operations

Abstract : Natural disasters are affecting millions of people every year and causing billions of dollars of damage. Humanitarian relief operations aim to alleviate the suffering of the victims after the disaster. Performance of humanitarian relief can be measured with its efficiency and effectiveness. Coverage and speed of humanitarian response are two main components of its effectiveness. In this paper, we are trying to measure the response readiness of a humanitarian supply chain for an immediate disaster, by developing a metric called “humanitarian response readiness”. With this metric, we are measuring the coverage and speed capabilities of the humanitarian supply chain together, with a priori measurement approach.
