• The Emergency Telecommunications Cluster (ETC) was activated on 20 November 2017 under the leadership of the World Food Program (WFP) to provide shared Information and Communications Technology (ICT) services in the Kasai, Tanganyika and South Kivu regions.

  • The ETC conducted an initial ICT assessment, which stresses the urgent need in Kasai for security telecommunications and Internet connectivity for humanitarian staff conducting activities outside of urban areas.

  • An estimated USD$1.4 million is required to enable the ETC to provide coordination, information management and delivery of shared ICT services for 6 months for the common operational areas identified.
