Post-Disaster Services

As climate change-induced natural disasters are becoming all the more frequent and severe, in particular hurricanes, wildfires and flash floods, people and livelihoods are affected adversely on a much greater scale than ever before. Extreme weather events have a particularly devastating effect on agricultural production seeing as crops are especially vulnerable. HVA possesses the know-how and requisite methodology regarding the services needed to restore the damage incurred by such natural disasters.

Sudden-onset disasters and devastating weather events can leave affected populations paralyzed and ground truths are often hard to come by. In order to minimize damage to agricultural land, it is imperative that authorities act in a timely fashion and receive recommendations by experienced analysts, based on reliable, verified information.

​HVA’s Rapid Deployment Teams (RDTs) can provide authorities with accurate assessments and problem-specific recommendations. By inserting our multi-functional teams into disaster-affected areas, ground truths will be gathered quickly, analysed on-site by experienced professionals and disseminated to decision-makers.

​The methodology of HVA’s deep-field response teams is to assess the following:

  • extent of damage
  • potential hazards
  • condition of infrastructure
  • items of interest

HVA’s specialty competency comprises:

  • environmental restoration after a wildfire
  • desalination of soils after a tsunami
  • restoration of production facilities after a hurricane
  • installation of provisional farms for livestock
  • and drafting full-scale restoration plans for large areas
