HA/DR Research e-Portal

Welcome to the U.S. Naval War College Civilian-Military Humanitarian Response Program's (HRP) Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Response (HA/DR) research e-portal!

HRP seeks to improve the coordination between U.S. and international militaries, nongovernmental organizations, government organizations and intergovernmental organizations during complex emergencies and natural disasters. The e-portal is intended to provide easy access to research tools for scholars and practitioners working on issues that involve civilian-military coordination in humanitarian response. We would appreciated any suggestions on how our e-portal might better serve your research needs. 


The HA/DR e-portal is a work in progress and will be updated regularly. Please contact the U.S. Naval War College Library Reference Desk at or Dave Polatty at with suggestions for additional documents and/or any comments.
