The Role of Satellite Communications in Disaster Management

This seminal paper highlights the crucial role that satellite services and next-generation satellite-enabled connectivity will have in saving millions of lives and reducing government expenditure during and post-disaster. Providing unique data, the document forecasts the economic impact and future burden countries will face if disaster communications planning is not taken seriously.

This study provides key insights into the impact of climate change across the world, and how satellite communications will play a pivotal role in saving millions of lives while reducing costs. It highlights how the impact of climate change will be confined to mainly low and middle-income countries that aren’t prepared to adapt.
