As global lead of the Emergency Telecommunications Cluster (ETC), the World Food Programme (WFP) is convening the Emergency Telecommunications Sector (ETS) in Nigeria, responding with government, private sector and humanitarian partners on the ground to ensure a coordinated response. ETS Nigeria SitReps are issued monthly.
The ETS continues to provide Internet connectivity and security communications services to the response community in 10 sites. Since the beginning of the year, the team has provided Internet connectivity to more than 3,702 users from 107 organizations across North-East Nigeria.
Throughout August, the ETS programmed 46 radios for humanitarian responders to improve the communication between staff in the region and to ensure their safety and security.
This month, the ETS conducted two webinar sessions on ETS IT Policy user awareness for 18x humanitarians in Maiduguri and across field locations.
