Director signs agreement on emergency satellite communications

Director Sanou and Marie-Josée Jacobs, Minister for Development Cooperation and Humanitarian Affairs, Luxembourg signed in New York a new agreement to deploy an emergency satellite communications platform.

Director Sanou declared:

"The launch of a collaborative and coordinated communication system to serve the humanitarian community is an important step in saving lives. Given the critical role of ICTs in disaster preparedness and relief, ITU believes that no one organization could alone address all the needs of the humanitarian community. Partnerships among providers of emergency telecommunications systems and services are critical in pooling resources for saving lives regardless of the nature of the disaster or where it takes place."
