I am pleased to inform you that the Sri Lanka's Chamindra de Silva and another volunteer developer are arriving in Islamabad today to deploy Sahana that is a Free and Open Source Software disaster management system that handles missing/displaced persons, camp management, assistance, trading system, etc. These are the lead developers for the same system, which was used in Sri Lanka to coordinate aid for the Tsunami disaster.
Pakistan Software Export Board, Open Source Resource Centre, International Open Source Network UNDP-IOSN are assisting them to Pakistan. FOSSFP will keep you updated about their visit and sahana deployments.
