The role of international broadcasting for disaster relief


The most effective dissemination of information to the disaster stricken population is multi-platform, but radio is the most dominant technology, especially in early post-disaster situations. The specific technology of international broadcasting on shortwave is disaster-resilient, because the transmission facilities are well removed from the affected region.

Annex 8A provides further information on the importance of terrestrial radio in international broadcasting. Annex 8B gives further details about the International Radio for Disaster Relief (IRDR) project, conceived by the HFCC - International Broadcasting Delivery (HFCC). The project's ultimate aim is to identify frequency channels in each shortwave band, which the global coordination community will reserve for disaster mitigation broadcasting:



  • Annex 8A: HFCC - The importance of terrestrial radio in international broadcasting.
