This video gives a run down on how mobile phones are able to assist in Disaster Risk Management, from collecting data, to widespread communication like earthquake or bushfire warnings to two way communication, education empowerment and access to information. It also highlighted the things you might need to consider like the quality of the internet, vulnerable populations, access to smartphones and so on. Mobile phones have spread throughout the globe in use and being able to use them in a positive way and to reach groups that previously may have been unreachable in a disaster situation may potentially save lives.
