Telecommunications for Disaster Relief (TDR) is a proposal by the International Telecommunications Union to establish worldwide standards of interoperability and availability of emergency communications. The notion of establishing such standards was spurred in part by the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami which devastated Indonesia.

The ITU assigned country code +888 for TDR, administered by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs. Numbers are assigned for the duration of a particular relief activity only, and may be reused for a future event.
