The Global Initiative for Inclusive ICTs (G3ict) is conducting a study, commissioned by the ITU, on best practices in using Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) for inclusive disaster management in the Asia-Pacific region.
ICTs can play a critical role in connecting people to information, people to rescue workers and resources, and people to people in the immediate aftermath and recovery. ICTs have the potential to be a life-saving tool for marginalized groups such as persons with disabilities, children, older people, people in remote areas, and with low literacy.
A brief survey designed to learn about how countries and organizations are incorporating the use of ICTs in disaster management, and learn about strategies and practices that have been effective in assisting marginalized groups during disasters and emergencies.
The survey is available at: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/1817233/ICT-for-Disaster-Management-Survey-G3ict-ITU
