Disaster Accountability Project (DAP), an organization founded after Hurricane Katrina, is seeking new Board members!
In particular, we are very interested in recruiting a new member with a tech sector background.
DAP is the only independent watchdog of disaster relief and humanitarian aid.
We are involved in a range of advocacy to make sure preparedness works, relief is comprehensive, and recovery is responsive and accountable.
DAP's focus is both U.S. and global. We recently launched SmartResponse.org to improve the effectiveness of disaster relief and humanitarian aid by helping donors identify the groups operating locally after disasters. Localized and data-informed "how to help" lists can expedite assistance and make aid efforts more effective and transparent.
Over 400 organizations from 45+ countries have already registered on SmartResponse.org and most are sharing information.
In addition to improving effectiveness, accountability and transparency in disaster relief and humanitarian aid, SmartResponse advances the localization objectives of the Grand Bargain, a primary output of the UN's World Humanitarian Summit.
