Communication When It's Needed Most
In 1988 The Annenberg Washington Program convened a study group of diverse
experts in science, media, technical communications, and disaster management to
consider the application of communications to disasters. Led by Annenberg Senior
Fellow David Webster, the Annenberg International Disaster Communications Project
released its preliminary papers--International Disaster Communications
Initiatives for Greater Effectiveness in Mitigating Sudden Catastrophes--in
September 1988 at the International Institute of Communications annual conference
in Washington, D.C. The final papers were published by the Program in May 1989
under the title Communication When It's Needed Most: How New Technology Could
Help in Sudden Disasters.
