A Flash Appeal is triggered for sudden onset disasters, when the crisis surpasses the ability of the government and any one agency to respond adequately. A Flash Appeal is also issued when an L3-crisis is declared. According to GA Resolution 46/182, a FA should be issued within the shortest possible time and in any event not longer than one week after the crisis.
