Complex Emergencies

Complex Emergencies

A natural or human caused disaster with multiple economic, social and political dimensions. Complex emergencies may begin as one type of disaster, such as urban fire, but the consequences cause other disasters such as transport incidents or flooding. Complex emergencies often require an all-hazards response involving multiple agencies.
