ADAT will provide IFRC with a flexible tool to create assessments and analyse the data.

  • Reusable list of questions which can be used in multiple assessments

Back Ground

This blue print describes the extensions to use the Survey Tool to implement the ADAT project for IFRC. It is based on the initial specification from the GSoC project:, although reflecting changes due to improvements to the Sahana Eden Framework and lessons learned from the GSoC project.
