WFP (World Food Programme):
Strengthen WFP's preparedness for when disaster strikes
When natural or man-made disasters strike, WFP is poised to bring assistance within hours through a network of hubs stocked with humanitarian supplies, emergency telecommunications facilities and highly-trained rapid response specialists. WFP is an expert in disaster preparedness and response; saving lives and protecting livelihoods in emergencies is a top priority for us.
Leaders in the IT and telecommunications sectors can help WFP strengthen its ability to set up life-saving communications networks in the immediate aftermath of a humanitarian disaster. Support includes delivering training and sharing best practices among IT personnel across the humanitarian community or providing access to equipment needed on the ground in an emergency.
