Current Emergencies

ETC Activities: 

The Emergency Telecommunications Cluster (ETC) is currently not activated in Uganda.

Within the framework of the Refugee Coordination Model, the Refugee Emergency Telecommunications Sector (RETS) has been mobilised in Northern Uganda in response to the influx of refugees fleeing violence, political instability and famine in South Sudan.

As a refugee situation, the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) is leading response efforts and while the ETC has not been activated, members of the cluster support the UNHCR-led response when and where required.
