Internet Project Kosovo

Internet Project Kosovo was created by the International Rescue Committee (IRC) to connect the international relief communities urgently working in Serbia following the 1998-1999 Albanian-Serbian conflict.The project involved designing, coordinating, and implementing a satellite and wireless microwave network within an area where NATO bombing had destroyed most of the power grids and telecommunications infrastructure.Within six months, a satellite dish and connection were set up, microwave equipment installed, and repeater antenna sites established.Once finished, the project was handed off for continuation to a local organization. Lessons learned included the need for concise project scope, scheduling by milestones rather than dates, and the necessity of flexibility and simplicity.
