Challenge: There are lots of recommendations available how to provide for disasters (e.g. how much water, food, and medicine to stock) but only few people abide by these recommendations. In case of disaster, most people need immediate help and there is limited information available on who needs help most.

Solution: LifeApp helps individuals to self-assess their specific risks by exploring their personal situation (residence, health status, food / medicine inventory) and encouraging them to better prepare for disasters. All information is stored in a secure Blockchain-based system and will be made available to emergency management only in case of a disaster. This way, there will be detailed and up-to-date information available not only about people's personal needs but also about how well they are prepared for the specific disaster. A need prediction system uses the information to provide detailed forecasts for what help will be needed where and when.

Benefits: LifeApp has the potential to reduce the impact of disasters by helping individuals to better prepare according to their specific risks. In case of a disaster, the system increases the efficiency of emergency aid by allowing for better planning.
