February 28, 2020

This ITU report, developed by Luxon, assists national authorities and policymakers to develop a clear, flexible and user-friendly framework that guides countries on how to develop a strategic plan to support and enable the continued use of telecommunication and information and communication technology (telecom/ICT) networks and services in all four phases of disaster management: mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery. It not only describes the main elements that a national emergency telecommunication plan (NETP) should consider, but also highlights its potential benefits. It includes a step-by-step guide to the development of an NETP, it serves as a useful resource based on ITU recommendations and concepts, as well as expertise from other global bodies and organizations. This guide is designed to be flexible enough to be adapted to any kind of disaster that a country may face, and it also presents a full typology of disasters, including climatological, hydrological, meteorological, geophysical and biological disasters.
