In 2015 the ETC adopted its 2020 Strategy that seeks to ensure that all those responding to emergencies within the humanitarian sector- including communities affected by crisis- have access to vital communication services.
Under the pillar "communications as aid", the ETC is building capacity and services to provide direct services for communities.
Based on two complementary approaches: Communication with Communities (CWC) and access to information within the humanitarian response, S4C analyzes the need for certain types of information for the implementation and enabling of partnerships which address communities’ inadequacies or lack of access to reliable, relevant and timely information. For CWC this means providing a way for emergency responders to access, share and relay back information to humanitarian workers as equal stakeholders.
Applications are now open for the first ever ETC Services for Communities (S4C) training, to take place in Rome, Italy between 22 and 24 January 2018.
Apply before 15 December 2017 here.
The ETC is looking forward to receiving applications from qualified candidates. Please find more details on the training page.
