Humanitarian organizations offer stability during disaster through relief operations. Identifying attributes of disaster response through collaboration at all levels increases effectiveness of operations. Past experience reveals the critical need for collaboration and coordination not only among the non-governmental, humanitarian organizations but also among the military, and private sectors. Proximity and understanding of the neighboring countries’ political, social and geographic environment is the reason why military assets are usually the first ones to be deployed. However, there remain challenges in civil-military collaboration in terms of principles versus pragmatism as well as a general lack of military doctrine and training in humanitarian relief operations.
