Morning Breakout 3 – Towards Common Humanitarian Standards for the Use of ICTs LIMITED

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

In a modern humanitarian response, success often depends on the use and deployment of ICTs. However, while the humanitarian community has general protection principles and standards, there is currently no comprehensive guidance on the use of ICTs and the information they generate. ICT solutions in emergency settings require ethical standards so that they can be truly deployed in a humanitarian way. How can humanitarians and the private sector work together in agreeing on common humanitarian standards for the use of ICTs in emergencies, and what should these be? Registration is required for this session and participation is capped at 35 people. This session will be conducted under Chatham House rules.
