The Sharjah Government Media Bureau (SGMB) has launched a new Government Support Platform to strengthen cooperation and coordination with various government departments and entities in the emirate.

As part of its initiatives to help bolster government administration in Sharjah, the SGMB launched a Crisis Management Guide for government communication departments in the emirate in order to help them deal effectively with crises and emergencies.

Crisis communication helps various parties maintain their reputation and image during a crisis, and demonstrate their commitment to their core values and keenness to provide relief and support to those affected by the crisis.

The Crisis Management Guide spotlights the critical role played by government communication teams during unforeseen crises and emergencies, suggesting ways and mechanisms of tackling crisis situations and developing action plans to take on such challenges.

Tariq Saeed Allay, Director General of the Sharjah Government Media Bureau, reaffirmed the SGMB’s keenness to work with various government agencies and departments in Sharjah in order to support the efforts of the emirate and its qualitative development initiatives and to develop effective mechanisms for communication and rapid response in crises and emergencies.

The Government Support Platform, which aims to bolster cooperation and coordination between various government agencies and departments in Sharjah and exchange expertise and invaluable professional insights, contributes to coordinating collective efforts and enhancing the quality of work and outputs in the emirate.

Allay pointed out that the Crisis Management Guide developed by the SGMB is a testament to its keenness to support and empower government communication departments in the Sharjah government and facilitate their tasks in accordance with the highest standards of quality and professionalism.

He lauded the role of the Government Communication Network in raising the level of cooperation between government agencies and consolidating the importance of teamwork and participation in decision-making.

The Government Communication Network (GCN), which includes members of various Sharjah government departments, aims to create effective communication channels between various government agencies in the emirate.

The GCN works to facilitate the exchange of information and expertise and to coordinate the various stakeholders and their efforts in a way that contributes to translating the Government’s goals and strengthening government communication mechanisms in the emirate.
