ITU improved the availability and accessibility of its documents related to Emergency Telecommunications. The most recent work by ITU's three Sectors (Radiocommunication, Standardization and Telecommunication Development) can been viewed on our Emergency Telecommunications pages. Disasters strike with increased frequency and magnitude, resulting in unprecedented loss of human life, economic disruption and damage.
This legacy publication is superseded by the above website but presents the work done by ITU up to 2007 in the field of emergency telecommunications. For up-to-date information see the Emergency Telecommunications website.
