ICT for Disaster Management (ICT4DM)
Start Date: Sep 12, 2013
End Date: Sep 13, 2013
Venue: Mauritius
Description: ICTs play an enormous role in minimising the impact of natural disasters, across the disaster cycle, from preparedness and mitigation to relief, recovery and reconstruction. Policy, regulatory and technical interventions, that have been refined over the last two decades, has the potential to substantially reduce the impact of natural disasters. The CTO has conducted a series of conferences on the use of ICTs for Disaster Management (ICT4DM) since 2006. The latest workshop of this series will be held in Mauritius on 12 – 13 September 2013. Attendance at this workshop is by invitation only and will be limited primarily to Mauritian delegates.

Organised by the Information and Communications Technology Authority of Mauritius under the patronage of the Ministry of Information and Communication Technology of Mauritius, this workshop seeks to build capacity within Mauritius to utilise ICTs effectively for disaster management.
