Preparedness for Appropriate accommodation in Emergency Shelters (PACES)

<< Back to search results



Large scale disasters cause a lot of damage in densely populated areas hence mass evacuation is required. Large number  of  people, residents  and  tourists,  must  be  evacuated  in  a short  period  of  time. Emergency shelters must be made for the needs of the population of the affected area. These needs include among others, communication and medical care. One of the main challenges during  a  crisis  is  the  care  for  the  population  that is gathered  in  great  numbers  at  specific  areas,  affected either  directly  or  indirectly  by  the  event.  Experience  has  shown  that  logistic  procedures  need  improvement  when  the  number  of  the evacuees  is  very  high  during  the  first  days.  The affected population, including children and elderly with disabilities, need appropriate accommodation and living conditions for a short period of time.
