Coordination of Humanitarian Aid

Abstract: We examine a setup where two agents allocate a fixed budget of humanitarian aid between two equally needy areas. The agents may be biased to one area which is their private information. Without communication aid is allocated inefficiently resulting in gaps and overlaps in response. Direct communication between the agents is ineffective and cannot resolve the coordination failure. We show that coordination can be improved by a mediator who filters the information communicated by the agents. An information management system can act as a mediator. Our results can throw light on how to improve the current disaster management systems.
