Private sector, government, United Nations, Non-Governmental (NGO) and other humanitarian organisations partner with the Emergency Telecommunications Cluster (ETC) to fulfil its current mandate and strive towards ETC2020.
The ETC relies on this network of partners to help it carry out its crucial work around the world.
Partners can support the ETC in a number of different ways:
From equipment and services, to visibility and human resources, in-kind donations support the ETC in providing life-saving connections in emergencies.
Through the World Food Programme (WFP) as global lead of the ETC, cash donations allow the ETC to respond to humanitarian communications needs with speed and efficiency. The flexibility of cash donations means that the funds can be transferred to where they are needed most.
Stand-by Partners are organisations which provide additional human resource capacity to the ETC, through WFP as global lead, to support emergency operations as well as strategic projects such as ETC2020.
