As part of its Disaster Preparedness and Response Program (DPR), NetHope Field Operations has identified the need to increase resilience to decrease the level of vulnerability. We do this by providing training, prepositioning of equipment, network connectivity, and power solutions to areas prone to crisis where our members operate.
By augmenting its disaster preparedness, response, and program activities NetHope can scale its capacity within the humanitarian aid community.
Communications infrastructures are essential for obtaining access to information especially during sudden onset and protracted emergencies. The likelihood of finding an operational infrastructure in place with the capability to support the emergent need would be limited or non-existent in many of the developed countries that are susceptible to natural or man-made disasters.
