Compendium of ITU's Work on Emergency Telecommunications

This publication presents, for the first time under one cover, the work being done by ITU's three Sectors (Radiocommunication, Standardization and Telecommunication Development) in the field of emergency telecommunications (or disaster communications). The release of this compendium is timely since disasters are striking with increased frequency and magnitude, resulting in unprecedented loss of human life, not to mention economic disruption and damage. The electronic versions are free of charge as of 2014.
