Telecommunications for Disaster Relief and Mitigation - Partnership Co-ordination Panel (PCP-TDR)

The creation of the PCP-TDR was proposed at the February 2003 ITU-T workshop on Telecommunications for Disaster Relief (TDR), endorsed by TSAG in its February 2003 meeting, and approved by ITU-T Study Group 16 in May 2003. After WTSA-04, PCP-TDR is under the responsibility of ITU-T Study Group 2.
The PCP-TDR should ensure that key players are involved in defining and meeting the requirements for telecommunications for disaster relief, here included early warning. Participation is open to international telecommunication service providers, related government departments, standards development organizations, disaster relief organizations, and other entities working in the field.
