Crisis List

InterAction compiles a list of members responding to a crisis, whether it is a natural disaster or other complex emergency. Crisis lists are initiated based on the scale of the emergency, the likelihood of a response by the U.S. government and U.S.-based NGOs, and the amount of public interest and media coverage. The lists include operational updates of members’ response activities and links to provide assistance to the affected populations.

Crisis lists are also a helpful tool for the media and potential donors looking to see which InterAction members are responding to a particular crisis.
