Ethics Technical Working Group

WFP's Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Technical Working Group (TWG) aims to build a community of stakeholders around the safe and responsible use of drones in humanitarian activities. The TWG serves as a platform to exchange ideas, best practices and help improve multi-stakeholder buy-in and coordination. The Ethics TWG is one of four key areas of focus. 

The Ethics Technical Working Group focuses on ethical issues that arise from the use of UAS in the work of international humanitarian actors such us personal data protection when processing data collected by UAS, applicable regulations or frameworks and emerging technologies.

The group hosts several outside experts to present their work to the members in the spirit of cooperation and information sharing as well as to initiate constructive conversations that will enrich the experience and work of the TWG members. Please don’t hesitate to contact the chair or co-chair if you see that the work of your organization/entity will bring an added value to this TWG and members.

 

Chair: Christos Panayi/ WFP

Co-chair: Faine Greenwood/ Independent
