Facilitating two-way public communication in crisis and disaster management

Abstract

The use of social media platforms and contemporary ICT technology has radically changed the way we prepare communities and support them in responding to crises and disasters. One-way communication is no longer enough.

In this blog article, Trilateral’s researchers outline several projects where they have been working with partners to examine the role that communication, and particularly two-way communication, plays in disaster and crisis management.
