Drones in Humanitarian Action

Drones have become functional, user friendly and cheap enough, to significantly help in humanitarian crises. That is one of the key findings of the research initiative “Drones in Humanitarian Action”, which examines different uses of drones for humanitarian operations. It was presented by the Swiss Foundation for Mine Action (FSD), in partnership with CartONG, UAViators and Zoi Environment Network during the EU Humanitarian Aid Annual Partners’ Conference in Brussels. The corresponding report, produced by Zoï, is available as an ebook and in PDF format.
