assessment teams on the ground. Normally one agency will take the lead, often an organisation that is already engaged there.” When a powerful earthquake hit Haiti in


2010, the airport only had three spaces for freighters on the ramp, so the authorities had to prioritise what flights would come in first, recalled van der Stichele. To determine who would be granted landing slots, they asked what commodities flights were
