The Report of a Joint Working Group of the European Foundation Centre and the Council on Foundations

The Guide sets out eight principles of good disaster management:
1. Do no harm.
2. Stop, look and listen before taking action.
3. Don’t act in isolation.
4. Think beyond the immediate crisis to the long term.
5. Bear in mind the expertise of local organizations.
6. Find out how prospective grantees operate.
7. Be accountable to those you are trying to help.
8. Communicate your work widely and use it as an educational tool.

The Guide then goes on to discuss in detail each of these principles.
