Bridging the Data Analytics Divide for Climate Disaster Preparation and Action
Wednesday, Oct 4, 2023
In any major climate-linked crisis, access to geo-spatial-temporal datasets, mapping, modeling, and analytical tools are critical to aid recovery efforts and protect communities. Many expert researchers, especially scientists and institutions in low-income countries, lack the tools to access and analyze relevant data, to inform local decision makers on how to act rapidly and effectively. Currently, there is no mechanism to harmonize global access to urgently needed datasets and high-performance computing tools. This table discussion, led by the International Science Reserve, will bring together climate tech and corporate leaders to discuss how to bridge the data analytics divide.
