Abstract

The extraordinary conditions of a disaster require the mobilisation of all available resources, inducing the rush of
humanitarian partners into the affected area This phenomenon called the proliferation of actors, causes serious
problems during the disaster response phase including the oversupply, duplicated efforts, lack of planning In an
attempt to reduce the partner proliferation problem a framework called PREDIS (PREdictive model for DISaster
response partner selection) is put forward to configure the humanitarian network within early hours after disaster strike
when the information is scarce To verify this model a simulation game is designed using two sets of real decision
makers (experts and non-experts) in the disaster Haiyan scenario The result shows that using the PREDIS framework
100% of the experts could make the same decisions less than six hours comparing to 72 hours Also between 71% and
86% of the times experts and non-experts decide similarly using the PREDIS framework
