Virtual Disaster Simulation Session 2017

An interactive learning lab to better understand and build a resilient supply chain

6th September 2017  - 13:55pm

Aid & International Development Forum (AIDF) organised the Disaster Response Simulation for humanitarian and development professionals on 6 September 2017 as part of the Global Disaster Relief Summit in Washington D.C.. Read the highlights of the last year's session here.

 

SCENARIO 

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.

 

 

VIRTUAL AND LIVE ACTION SESSION

Using virtual and live action role play, the Disaster Response Simulation offers participants a chance to represent one of the four sectors working in a crisis scenario: business, government, individual or non-profit organisations with an aim to coordinate an efficient delivery of humanitarian assistance to countries affected by the disaster.
 

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.
