[creative-radio] Information and communications technology for disaster risk reduction


Information and communications technology for disaster risk reduction

It is widely recognized that information and communications technology
(ICT), including space-based technology, plays an important role in
establishing effective early warning systems and success conducting
emergency preparedness and response activities. Aimed at policy- and
decision-makers from developing countries working on disaster risk
reduction in the Asia and the Pacific region, this policy brief discusses
useful infrastructure and applications and recommends actions on how to
mainstream and enhance their use in disaster risk reduction efforts, in
particular with respect to early warning systems.
