DDN Communities: Disaster Relief and Emergency Preparedness

DDN Communities: Disaster Relief and Emergency Preparedness: "Disaster Relief and Emergency Preparedness
Developed in collaboration with:
EDC Center for Media & Community | LearningTimes

This community has been created in response to the devastating December 2004 tsunami that killed tens of thousands of people across Asia. The space can be used for discussing the role that information and communication technologies (ICTs) can play in averting natural disasters and assisting relief efforts. Participants may also use it to share resources on relief work during times of crisis, as well as ICTs and emergency preparedness.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the recent virtual tour of this community. The audio from the webcast (large: 60 mbytes) has been archived."
