In a disaster, timely information from the ground is paramount to ensure emergency response teams target their response and mobilize resources to the affected area. In remote communities like this one in Libera, technology like solar power makes it possible for communities to communicate information about a disaster. The impact of technology on people's ability to survive and recover from disasters is the focus of this year's World Disasters Report from the IFRC.
