The United States Pacific Command (PACOM) area of responsibility (AOR) includes 36 Asia-Pacific countries and over 100 million square miles of Earths surface. Five of the countries in the PACOM are historically most often hit by natural disasters and require immediate response with effective coordination. In order to provide the most effective disaster-relief efforts, identification of the organizations that are available and the capabilities that they can provide is essential. This research identifies and analyzes 27 nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) that currently or recently conducted relief projects in the PACOM AOR. We primarily analyzed the organizations using six factors: (1) mission or primary focus, (2) capabilities, (3) budget, (4) training, (5) religious affiliation, and (6) liaison with military. We also analyzed the financial status of the NGOs for a better understanding. The end result of the research is to provide PACOM leadership with in-depth analysis of the most effective organizations that can assist in disaster relief preparation and the efficient coordination of resources and can minimize redundancy of efforts after a catastrophic event.
