When the impacts of a disaster overwhelm the capacity of local actors, there can be a role for international actors to supplement the local response. Yet, unless the local legal system is prepared for international assistance, legal barriers can prevent the right assistance reaching the right people on time.

This online learning module provides an introduction to common legal problems faced during international disaster response operations and how they can be mitigated.
