The aim of this paper is to identify gaps in post-disaster support and to disseminate information regarding those gaps among policy-makers so as to establish a society more resilient to disaster.

The research, including workshops and interviews conducted in Australia, Fiji, Cook Islands, Vanuatu, and Samoa, focuses on four main post-disaster humanitarian needs: (i) health care; (ii) food and nutrition; (iii) water, sanitation and hygiene; (iv) and psychosocial needs.
