ICTD Case Study 2.pdf — PDF document, 5586Kb

The second issue of the Asian and Pacific Training Centre for Information and Communication Technology for Development’s (APCICT) ICTD Case Study Series, ICT for Disaster Risk Reduction, discusses the ways in which ICT has positively impacted the various phases of disaster management. Noting the use of ICT during and in the immediate aftermath of disasters like the Indian Ocean Tsunami, and most recently the Haiti Earthquake, the case studies examine the important role ICTs play in disaster preparedness, response and mitigation. Case Study 2 shares the lessons learned by disaster management practitioners who have deployed ICT in response to disasters in countries like Bangladesh, China, Sri Lanka, and Haiti.
