  • Abstract The present dissertation mainly discusses the role and function of the Government, Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), International GovernmentalOrganizations (IGOs) and International Non-Governmental Organization's (INGO) under the circumstance of a natural disaster. This article attempts to compare cross-strait earthquakes through a case study of China Wenchuan earthquake and Taiwan 921 earthquake. We will explore and contrasts the emergency humanitarian assistance adopted by Taiwan during the 921 earthquake disaster and the one adopted by mainland China during the Wenchuan earthquake. When the disasters occurred what were the assistance actions of both countries Governments, NGOs, IGOs and INGO's? Were there any difference between China Wenchuan earthquake and Taiwan 921 earthquake? Also, this article discusses the role and functions of Governments, NGOs, IGOs and INGO’s in these two different natural disasters. According to this study, we found that during the Taiwan 921 Earthquake, the emergency actions undertaken by the Government, NGOs and INGO show there was no single dominant mechanism of emergency assistance. Each of these institutions and organizations help each other to complete the rescue action. However, during Wenchuan earthquake, The Chinese mainland emergency action reflects the situation of a centralized government-led emergency relief. Furthermore, from the perspective of the Government, NGOs, IGOs and INGO, we can also see the humanitarian aid showed different pattern depending on each country.
