Briefing Note 9 "ICT for Disaster Risk Management"

This briefing note focuses on disaster risk management as an information-hungry set of activities for protecting the public’s welfare and promoting sustainable development. Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs), particularly computer and Web-based digital technologies, are used to connect the decision maker or actor to the sources of information, and to analyze these in order to know what to do or what to avoid.
