What is a powerful weapon against Ebola? High-speed Internet. Dependable communications capacity is the foundation for effective emergency response. The Ebola epidemic is no different. For many in the field, fighting Ebola is as much about logistics as medicine. Read more: https://agenda.weforum.org/2015/01/why-high-speed-internet-is-a-weapon-against-ebola #TackleEbola #ICT4D
Responders on West Africa’s Ebola frontline need fast and flawless internet connections if they are to have any chance of preventing a pandemic.

Skilled technical communities are helping provide on the ground responders with vital information during humanitarian crises. Dr. Chan, NetHope Informatics Coordinator explores how these digital volunteers are playing a role during crises and how training and additional resources can help better prepare them. Read more: http://huff.to/1PZHTkX
Agility is a fundamental requirement for working in the humanitarian sector. The requirements don't end there however. As the sector has learned the hard way, "good intentions" don't always equate to the best outcomes. There is a great need for a formalized system to better train people who are interested in digital volunteerism. Investment in onboarding digital volunteers with different types of skills and backgrounds is needed.

Technology is creating dynamic shifts for NGOs. Much like other industries such as publishing or photography, the changing landscape is creating new challenges but it is also opening up new opportunities for organizations willing to embrace technology and the innovation it can enable.
