Local capacity building is a priority area for the ETC heading into 2019 as the situation in Yemen becomes more complex. In a country struggling with conflict, sharp economic decline, cholera and famine, the need to bolster local IT capacity among humanitarians is critical.
Thirty-three participants from 22 organisations (10 UN, 12 NGO) gathered in Sana’a this week for the ETC’s second inter-agency capacity building exercise.
The Emergency Telecommunications Cluster (ETC)is preparing to conduct a second inter-agency ICT capacity building exercise in Sana’a in November.
The ETC has revised the proposal for its plannedServices for Communities (S4C) project in Sana’a University. Once the ETC S4C Officer has approved the revised proposal, will be forwarded to the Humanitarian Coordinator in Yemen for funding.
