From the ISSMGE:

The ISSMGE “Geo-engineers Without Borders” new Committee (GeoWB) launched by President Marc Ballouz and managed by Pierre Delage with the help Daniela Pollak (Board member) aims at proposing to send volunteer geo-engineers from the ISSMGE worldwide network to areas affected by a geo-disaster (including earthquakes, landslides, floods, failure of dykes, dam and tailing dams, collapse of geotechnical structures). Volunteers will prepare a short comprehensive report for national and international authorities (travel expenses paid by the ISSMGE). Particular attention will be given to risk analysis and possible preventive measures.

Some GeoWB reports about geo-disasters can be found here. Further information on GeoWB can be found here.
