AIDF has released a list of top Twitter accounts in disaster response and development. Inspired by the Global Disaster Relief & Development Summit, AIDF’s 100 Must-Follow Twitter List includes thought leaders, NGOs, UN agencies, foundations, charities and media with highest levels of engagement, number of followers and most relevant tweets to humanitarian aid and disaster relief.
From Facebook to Samsung, the big name corporations across the globe are producing new innovations aimed at disaster relief. Recently, Facebook introduced its disaster maps project, which will allow aid and humanitarian organizations to track data and vital information during crisis situations. The maps are predicted to assist in the response effort by indicating locations lacking in resources and protection.
Technology is evolving to meet the needs of emergency responders and humanitarian professionals in implementing development programmes. The Aid & Development Asia Summit, which took place last month in Myanmar’s capital, Naypyitaw, showcased a range of new technologies and innovations that help save lives and support Sustainable Development Goals. The Summit also offered an update on policies and programmes in Southeast Asia and an opportunity to meet and engage with government ministers, UN representatives, NGOs and the private sector companies in aid and sustainable development.
We look forward to hearing from you,
