The LINKS Framework, like a compass, aims to support navigation and orientation within and across two main themes – Engaging with Citizens and Improving Communication – so that disaster management organizations and relevant stakeholders can take more informed decisions on the uses of Social Media and Crowdsourcing through the LINKS products. Orientation is supported by pre-defined questions that guide users towards the LINKS products.
