The solution is a Humanitarian Country Team (HCT) relief and rehabilitation activities coordination platform. It would extends to the wider humanitarian community, government and the public. The main uses include:
- Managing relief
- requests - authorized users to report a request
- suppliers (donors) -
- commit supplies
- dispatch (goods/services),
- monitor the delivery & return of supplied (logistics)
- publish situational-reports and management summary reports
- display of relief activities in list form, on a geographical map
The real need for a solution was recognized during the onset of the 2017 Southwest Monsoon instigated flood and landslide events in Sri Lanka. The UN Resident Coordinators Office (RCO) of Sri Lanka, supported by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific (ROAP), developed a simple 3W (“Who does What Where”) template.
- 3W was:
- simple and intended to capture the responding agencies activities and responding locations
- reflected on a map of Sri Lanka as a visual aid.
- eventually adapted into a 4W (“Who does What Where, and When”)
- 4W was:
- an enhancement to capture other details such as donors, responsible agencies and implementing partners.
- exceeding the capacity of the RCO to conduct mapping of the 4W (i.e. only the raw data was released)
- reliant on the manual regular distribution of the template, followed by manual “cleaning” of the data.
The HCT in the Lessons Learned Action Plan of 2017, determined that the Sahana EDEN platform should be explored as an option to improve these methods. The ShaRe Hub would be developed as an Eden template that can be deployed to server other HCT and UN RCO teams in other countries.
Value to the Humanitarian Community
- Improve the current system of information sharing in disaster response among responding agencies
- Act as an information sharing platform for the public and media on the humanitarian community’s response activities
- Potential resource mobilization tool for joint agency projects or emergency relief activities

Website updated in late 2017 to improve navigation and include “Contingency Planning” features (lists of standardised kits, data for district disaster response plans, and a relief registration function). However, while a member of the public can log a relief request on the website, there is no platform on which to view the progress of these requests or any other form on interaction with the NDRSC or other actors.

(a) Baseline Data Layer — provides basic information from official statistics such as population data and socio-economic indicators;
(b) Climate Layer — compiles satellite data showing meteorological drought (rainfall anomaly) and agriculture drought (Standardised Precipitation Index and Vegetation Health Index); and
(c) Impact Layer — delivers insights derived from the combination of baseline and climate layers such as area of crops affected and number of persons at risk of food insecurity.
