Open Data Day event: Understanding Disaster Risk with Open Data

“Disaster risk” is not a narrow domain reserved for climate experts and seismologists. Open data of all kinds – even datasets not conventionally seen as disaster-related – can help governments, humanitarian organizations and citizens prepare for and reduce disaster risk. 

On Saturday, March 6, join the Labs and OpenDRI team of the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) for an Open Data Day webinar on the value of open data for understanding disaster risk.

Learn how to:

  • Define disaster risk in the context of climate and natural hazards.
  • Identify disaster risks in your country or city.
  • Collect, share and use open risk data.
