Emergency Telecommunications Cluster – Provision of ICT services in support of the Humanitarian Community in the Republic of South Sudan

Sudan and South Sudan finalized their formal separation on 9 July 2011, following a referendum on secession as per the Comprehensive Peace Agreement signed in 2005. In September 2011 the Emergency Telecommunications Cluster (ETC) was formally activated in The Republic of South Sudan (RoSS) with WFP designated as the lead agency. Under this Special Operation, the ETC will provide essential ICT support and services to the humanitarian community in 10 locations in RoSS during 2012. Identified telecommunications and IT gaps will be addressed through the provision of security telecommunications, and IT services that will allow UN Agencies and NGOs (non-governmental organizations) in RoSS to better coordinate assessment, rescue and relief operations independent of public IT infrastructure. The provision of these services will be done with the support of ETC partners, including the Government of Luxembourg and Ericsson Response
