The World Disasters Report 2013 examines the profound impact of technological innovations on humanitarian action, how humanitarians employ technology in new and creative ways and what risks and opportunities may emerge as a result of technological innovations.

The study, produced by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), explains how improved access for vulnerable communities to basic technologies, such as early warning systems and mobile phones, would reduce the devastation of crises by saving many more lives.

The report recommends that governments and humanitarian agencies must fully commit to and invest in developing the tools, policies and strategies to improve dialogue with disaster affected communities.
