New GISF publication released – Communications Technology and Humanitarian Delivery: Challenges and Opportunities for Security Risk Management
Communications Technology and Humanitarian Delivery: Challenges and Opportunities for Security Risk Management is a new publication by GISF that brings together 17 authors. The 11 articles contained in this publication are dispatches from a new frontline in humanitarian action: the digital frontier. All are written by those observing, experiencing and attempting to respond to the challenges created by the digital revolution and the very real threats it is creating for humanitarian operations. Our aim is to explore the potential of new tools to create a safer, more responsive operational environment for aid workers.
The authors analyse in 11 articles how communications technology is changing the operational environment, the ways in which communications technology is creating new opportunities for humanitarian agencies to respond to emergencies, and the impact that new programmes have on how we manage security.
