Technology and the future of humanitarian action

The responsible use of technology offers concrete ways to make humanitarian assistance more effective, efficient and accountable and can, in turn, directly reduce vulnerability and strengthen resilience. Finding ways for advances in technology to serve the most vulnerable is a moral imperative; a responsibility, not a choice. This year’s World Disasters Report is a focus on technology and the future of humanitarian action.
