World disasters report 2013: using technology to save lives

Source(s):  International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC)

This report asserts that responsible use of technology offers concrete ways to make humanitarian assistance more effective, efficient and accountable and can, in turn, directly reduce vulnerability and strengthen resilience. Finding ways for advances in technology to serve the most vulnerable is a moral imperative; a responsibility, not a choice. It highlights ICT and Open Data initiatives for disaster risk reduction among its examples.

The report examines the profound impact of technological innovations on humanitarian action, how humanitarians employ technology in new and creative ways, and what risks and opportunities may emerge as a result of technological innovations.
