  1. Develop the solution


Search result for the possible stakeholders of Sahana and Eden Wiki.

Hypothesis: we suppose that the Wiki and Eden are two technological components of the same information system. Only the probability of the usage for a specific component varies for stakeholders. The advantage of this hypothesis is that the reflection which we make for the Wiki also applies for Eden. Developers

Developers should read the entire book as they should have an overview of how the software can be used and will need to maintain their local deployment. Basic customization doesn't require any more skills than those required for a Deployer, however, more advanced development will require being familiar with or learning the following skills: Python JavaScript Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)

Decision Makers

Preparing and planning for crisis and disaster scenarios is an important part of every community. Whether it is at a global, national, regional or local level, leaders who understand the complexities of disaster response make better decisions and can quickly respond to changing situations. Decision Makers should read the "Introduction" section. This content covers the Sahana Eden platform overview, capabilities and selected case studies. This material will help decision makers in strategic planning and give them important insight into the deployment process.


Those who are thinking about or who are ready to deploy Sahana Eden should read the "Introduction", "Getting Started" and "Administration" sections. In order to deploy Sahana Eden, a deployer should be comfortable with the following system administration processes: Installation of an operating system (such as Debian Linux) Command line usage (for package installation) System configuration involving editing of text files
