The increasing number and complexity of disasters has made specialization and coordination both important and challenging. Many organizations provide human aid, whether in immediate response to a disaster or after some time. United Nations bodies, local and Netherlands non-governmental organizations and host governments, donors military and commercial service providers are all involved in one form or another. Every organization specializes in offering a particular service to the persons of concern. The organizations are largely independent having their own funding systems. When specialized and independent, they can face a series of problems related to coordination.
