Reuters Foundation AlertNet - Alerting humanitarians to emergencies

source: http://www.alertnet.org

Reuters AlertNet is a humanitarian news network based around a popular website. It aims to keep relief professionals and the wider public up-to-date on humanitarian crises around the globe.

During the Rwanda crisis of 1994, the Reuters Foundation became interested in media reports of poor coordination between emergency relief charities on the ground. It surveyed charities on what could be done to remedy this. The conclusion was that there was a need for a service that would:
  • Deliver operation-critical information to relief charities worldwide
  • Incentivise relief charities to swap information with one another
  • Raise awareness of humanitarian emergencies among the general public
