So far, there is a lack of adequate implementation of humanitarian assistance after disasters due to the complexity of the situations. This lecture discusses opportunities where academia and research institutes may help to improve post-disaster interventions. Also, the strengths and weaknesses of different involved stakeholders are shown (see also stakeholder importance and influence). The implications are made apparent by lessons learnt from post-disaster interventions in Pakistan.
