Online Communities

Online workspaces and mailing list services

PreventionWeb provides free online collaboration workspaces and mailing list services to public and private disaster risk reduction communities.

Our platform can be used to manage a mailing list with broadcast messaging or an interactive discussion group, in which every subscriber can contribute. The system can also support multiple sub-communities.

Simple and easy to access, PreventionWeb workspaces provide an effective tool to engage with users all around the world, including in countries with low bandwidth Internet access.

Combining email and online workspaces

Each community has a unique email address and a related web space hosted at Subscribers can follow all discussions via email and contribute simply by sending an email.

The platform also offers a web space where users can manage their account and access the archive of the discussions. Relevant documents can easily be posted in an online community library.

The system is powered by Dgroups. It is non-commercial and respectful of privacy.
