Breaking news: Natural disaster threatens lives of tens of thousands
Aid agencies working in the disaster affected area and its neighbouring counties in the Americas are responding to the humanitarian crisis as a result of a recent natural disaster.
Victims are in need of water, food, shelter, clothing and medical supplies.
Using smartphones/tablets, each role has a different objective requiring players to collaborate with different stakeholders in order to keep supply lines open and reduce overlap.
The roles will be assigned at the beginning of the session and will differ from the day-to-day occupations of the participants in order to provide them with a different perspective on post-crisis supply chain challenges.
