New Communications Plan For Emergency UN Missions

CD New Communications Plan For Emergency UN Missions

"New Initiative To Provide Immediate Communications For Emergency UN Missions
United Nations emergency response missions around the world will have access to the latest telecommunications technology within 48 hours of a disaster anywhere on Earth under a five-year public-private partnership announced today.

“Rapid communications saves lives,” UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Executive Director Ann M. Veneman said of the initiative announced by the UN Foundation and the Vodafone Group Foundation (VGF). “There is an urgent need for food, water, shelter, protection and medical help in emergencies. None of these things are possible without quick and reliable communications.”
