ReliefWeb, launched in October 1996, is the world's leading on-line gateway to information (documents and maps) on humanitarian emergencies and disasters.

An independent vehicle of information, it provides timely, reliable and relevant information as events unfold, while also emphasizing the coverage of "forgotten emergencies". ReliefWeb maintains offices in three different time zones (New York, Geneva, and Kobe) in order to disseminate information around the clock. In addition, it reaches over 70,000 subscribers through its e-mail subscription services and offers a web feed service.
