ITU deployed 25 satellite terminals to help restore vital communication links in the aftermath of severe floods that have inundated low-lying districts across Zambia.

The Director said: I empathize with the Government and the people of Zambia for the untold suffering caused by the floods that have left a large number of people displaced and their crops wiped out. Cases such as this re-affirm the importance of disaster communications and underscore the need for the recently launched ITU Framework for Cooperation in Emergencies (IFCE) aimed at saving lives through the timely delivery of telecommunications resources to disaster-affected areas.
