ETC activated
ETC Activities: 

The Emergency Telecommunications Cluster (ETC) was formally activated in Iraq in August 2014 in response to the deteriorating security situation in the country. The ETC, led by the World Food Programme (WFP), continues to deliver lifesaving technology services and support to UN agencies and international NGOs.

The ETC is also working closely with UNAMI to share their radio network in Baghdad, Basra and Kirkuk and are together providing radio programming services across Iraq.

The ETC works with its partners, including Ericsson Response as well as the governments of US, Kuwait, UK, Canada, Sweden and Japan.
