With an increasingly volatile world, from direct and indirect man-made reasons (wars, climate change etc) and natural disasters, the need for disaster management will only increase. Some organisations may only be able to respond to a one off, or wish to test the waters before committing to a longer term engagement in the humanitarian setting. It can be expensive to in such cases to set up own infrastructure in the country, or to maintain permanent significant capacity to respond. Other organisations may have the funds, but not the capacity to stretch to implement in (yet another) humanitarian hotspot; temporary and/ or ad hoc humanitarian operational capacity is what most organisations require at some point.
