Major natural disasters often lead to a large and sudden influx of aid and assistance funds to the affected communities, which can create serious planning and coordination challenges for national and local authorities. A central obstacle is what can be called the information gap—the beneficiary government (as well as donor organizations and NGOs) lack readily accessible, timely, and reliable information about “who is doing what, where, and how” when it comes to post-disaster recovery and reconstruction activities. This lack of information can result in duplicated or overlapping efforts and a situation where activities are not well aligned with the government’s reconstruction plans and priorities.
Synergy’s award-winning post-disaster management solutions enable online, offline and mobile-based reporting and tracking of recovery and relief project funds and progress alongside needs/damages. GIS mapping and analytics help officials to plan and visualize recovery efforts to target the areas where they are needed most.
