About the product

When facing a natural disaster, the first fifteen days are critical for effective relief measures. A good deal of guidance exists from various sources; this recommendation consolidates this guidance to assist countries to either prepare relief plans for future disasters or to deal with a disaster once it has struck. It was prepared in close collaboration with the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UN OCHA) and with significant contributions from the International Committee of the Red Cross, the World Customs Organization (WCO), and the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).
