ProvIDES supports both US Government and Partner Nation requirements to comprehensively determine the current state of disaster management capabilities, develop disaster management plans and monitor progress towards improvement. ProvIDES seeks to transform emergency disaster relief from a predominantly military endeavor to a predominantly civil response with necessary military support, and provides tools and insights for all stakeholders. ProvIDES was built from a combination of existing frameworks (e.g., Hyogo) and a functional analysis of the disaster management process used by many countries. This framework provides a basis for simulation of disaster management and response scenarios for use by the US Government and Partner Nations, thus enabling improved planning, preparation, and execution of disaster management and response plans. ProvIDES will facilitate, via web-based “leave behind” tools, objective and measurable assessments. The development of reactive scenario simulations for Partner Nation exercises will also yield a measurable assessment. It will provide early warning information with links to WMOs, NOAA, NWS, and other monitoring agencies, as well as links to the NGOs/IOs/PVOs and other international emergency relief organizations for collaboration and coordination of efforts. The tools will provide for disaster preparedness, management coordination and tracking of participating organizations to provide better coordination of organizations and efforts. The measure of success will answer the question: Does the Partner Nation have the capability to learn and the capacity to obtain and maintain the level of competency that they need to achieve the desired outcome?
