|Disasters Preparedness and Mitigation - Supplement No. 4 on SUMA - Issue No. 72 (Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) / Organización Panamericana de la Salud (OPS), 1998, 8 p.)|
In the second semester of 1997, the European Union, through the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, financed rehabilitation projects for low-income families affected by several disasters in Costa Rica and Peru. The Federation's field delegates used the SUMA methodology with very good results - especially the Warehouse Management module - making it an important tool for future emergency situations.
