Our vision is to save lives and reduce suffering by using technology to improve ways humanitarian agencies prepare for and respond to disasters - creating quicker, more efficient responses before or immediately after a disaster strikes.
Preparing for disasters today
Between 1992 and 2012 there have been 1.3 million deaths caused by natural disasters.
If better preparations plans were in place thousands of lives could have been saved.
Crucially, funding is only getting to those in need after a crisis hits.
In the Information Age why can't we better prepare against disasters?
We want to create change.
We are building a new system that will help countries at risk prepare against disasters.
So we can help to save lives and respond faster to the effects of disasters.
Who are we?
The Alert Consortium and the START network brings together some of the world's largest charitable organisations. This coordination between humanitarian agencies is unprecedented at a project of this scale.
The creation of this new system also brings together the market experts in technology, design, risk management and emergency preparedness.
