software helps in time of disaster to know what to supply


"EMMAs can point out when a cash-based initiative (giving loans or vouchers to buy local goods) could be more effective, allowing relief organizations to spend less money and ultimately giving the local population more choice as to how they re-build."

This is about a software program that analyzes the needs of a disaster location, so donations and organizational efforts can be more efficiently utilized to provide just what is needed in the best way.  This sounds like an amazingly useful process.
