Video: Mr. Pujiono's presentation about E-Resilience and Sustainable Development
As part of the Sub-Regional Workshops on Internet Traffic Management and E-resilience for the Asia-Pacific Information Superhighway, Mr. Puji Pujiono, Regional Adviser on Disaster Risk Reduction at UNESCAP, talks about e-resilience and sustainable development.
E-resilience refers to the ability of ICT systems to withstand, recover from and change in the face of an external disturbance such as a natural disaster. Mr. Pujiono notes that e-resilience has the potential to reduce disaster risks and improve disaster management and preparedness. Particularly Sustainable Development Goal 9 is strongly linked to the topic of e-resilience, as it entails building resilient infrastructure. In addition, target 9.c seeks to considerably increase access to ICT and provide universal access to the Internet in LDCs by 2020.
The video is part of sub-regional workshops on Internet Traffic Management and E-resilience for the Asia-Pacific Information Superhighway that were held in Thimphu, Bhutan on 7-8 December 2016.
