In October 2014, the European Interagency Security Forum (EISF) launched a knowledge hub on communications technology and security risk management. The first publication of this project brought together 17 authors who analysed in 11 articles how communications technology is changing the operational environment, the ways in which communications technology is creating new opportunities for humanitarian agencies to respond to emergencies, and the impact that new programmes have on how we manage security.

In this foreword by Hugo Slim and introduction by Raquel Vazquez and Imogen Wall, the authors introduce the Communications Technology and Humanitarian Delivery project.
