EADRCC Assistance Requests Glossary

As a supplement to the “Checklist and Non-Binding Guidelines for the Request, Reception and Provision Of International Assistance in the Event of a CBRN Incident or Natural Disaster” published by EADRCC, this glossary is intended to assist nations in the request and provision stages of international disaster relief efforts.  By examining requests for assistance from the past decade, this glossary was assembled as a comprehensive, but not necessarily definitive, list of options for nations seeking support from NATO members and partners following a disaster. 

This glossary is intended to facilitate and expedite the provision of relief efforts by standardizing the language used to describe the capabilities, commodities and equipment requested in crisis situations.  Having a common understanding of what is being requested and provided will make the international response faster and more predictable. 

In some instances, broad categories of equipment or commodities have been simplified into one or a few entries, e.g. “Pump” and “Food”.  When more specificity is needed than the list provides, requesting nations can and should explicitly ask for the assistance desired.
