> Hi,
> I suggested we could try to set a volunteer team that would monitor the
> crisis information channels. IMHO this would have two folds:
> - monitor the crisis where there is a HOT Activation, in order to
> alleviate the burden of the main Activators, eg Pierre and Andrew for Ebola
> Crisis. There may be such an informal team or partnering with other
> Volunteering Technical Communities like VISOV or some more informal groups
> (like the one for the Sudan Floods), or not (case for the CAR Activation)
> - monitor the other crisis, especially the "forgotten ones" and raise the
> attention to the community. Sure there is a lot to do to the ones we
> activated but we may have contributors that prefer to contribute where the
> needs are high but the response low (it is actually my case).
> Regarding the channels, sure http://reliefweb.int/ is very useful but
> there are also other international broadcasting channels or regional and
> local ones. Simply exchanging about this would be beneficial for the whole
> response.
> Thoughts?
> Sincerely,
> Severin
