Joel Charny of Refugees International highlights that the lack of preparations that have been put in place to deal with the humanitarian crisis likely to develop follow the anticipated invasion of Iraq in a field report posted on Reuters' AlertNet.

A second report, also posted on AlertNet, lists the various relief organisations that are currently active in Iraq and outlines some of the dilemmas + difficulties associated with accepting the US government's humanitarian relief funds.

... and finally, an interview with John Howard of Registered Engineers for Disaster Relief makes the point that it will be difficult for relief organisations to deploy staff with US or UK passports if a US-led force does eventually invade Iraq.
