Damage and needs assessments in emergencies

 

10-12-2013 

The FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Department has just released Guidelines for the fisheries and aquaculture sector on damage and needs assessments in emergencies providing advice and a structure for assessing the requirements of

relief and rehabilitation following an emergency.

The Guidelines are aimed at those people who participate in post-disaster

needs assessment at the country level. They are already being used to help determine the damage and losses following Typhoon Haiyan which hit the Philiippines last month.
