Emergency Telecommunications ClusterLAGOS, (CAJ News) – A global network of telecommunications organisations is set to deploy radio operators to assist in its humanitarian work in northeast Nigeria regions enduring the Boko Haram crisis.
The Emergency Telecommunications Cluster (ETC) has revealed such plans, which will be implemented in partnership with the International Organisation for Migration (IOM).
The ETS, which is planning six humanitarian hubs in northeast Nigeria, delivered radio training to five United Nations Department of Safety and Security (UNDSS) radio operators late December.
The radio operators are currently managing the UNDSS Communications Centre
(COMCEN) in Maiduguri.
Officials said the ETS would concentrate its response in the states of Borno and Yobe to support the wider humanitarian response with the provision of lifesaving communications services.
In these states, the ETS will deploy services in eight common operational
areas.
