Responding effectively to humanitarian disasters is far from straightforward, and relief workers often find themselves working in competitive situations or at cross purposes with other agencies.Managing Humanitarian Relief is aimed at relief workers charged with putting together a program of action to help people in extreme crisis. It provides humanitarian relief managers with a single comprehensive reference for all the management issues they are likely to encounter in the field.The book is organized in two parts. First, it provides an outline of different relief programming sectors: food and nutrition, health, water and sanitation, and shelter. Second, it presents 20 separate management topics that are essential for overseeing programs.Its easy-to-use format includes checklists, tables, diagrams, sample forms, and no-nonsense tips from practitioners to help readers in emergency situations.
