What is the Spotlight Capability Gaps about?

The Spotlight Capability Gaps provides a consolidated view on the current and future capability gaps in Crisis management. It builds upon the work that was carried out as part of the Updated Gaps Assessment (link), in which a ”capability gap is understood to be the difference between a current capability and the capability considered necessary for the adequate performance of one or more disaster management tasks.”

The conducted work specifically aimed at identifying the CM capability gaps of the end-users partners and at better understanding and describing such gaps. This initial set of gaps was challenged and enriched through an in-depth analysis of the available literature in this field and during an assessment and validation workshop involving the wider CM community.

The result of this process is the compilation of 21 Crisis Management capability gaps organised in 5 CM functional domains: decision support; information sharing and coordination; engaging the population; resource planning and logistics, casualty management.
