The Checklist is designed to help organizations consider, plan, or implement relief projects. It helps donors think through the variables inherent in emergency logistics. To determine needs, plan responses, communicate along the supply chain, manage risk, and establish an environment for success, it's necessary to work collaborate with partners. Considering every step enhances your ability to make an impact, saves lives, and uses resources wisely. The current economic climate makes it especially important to assure donors that their gifts are making a difference. It is our intent that this Checklist will enable nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and their local partners to build trust with donors and one another, while remaining ultimately accountable to beneficiaries in the crisis zone.
