Planning better disaster response with the Climate Centre

The Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre is an interesting organization, tasked with advising all the different Red Cross and Red Crescent groups, whether country- or topic-based, to understand and reduce the impacts of climate change and extreme weather events on vulnerable people. Some of this has to do with understanding long-term trends and shifts, some of it with training about how climate works, and some in specialized support and resources.

Agenda and Sessions

The agenda is co-developed with participants, facilitators, and partners in the time leading up and during the event.

We'll strive to build capacity for humanitarian aid and disaster response efforts through technology and community. This event happens the weekend before the related but different Humanitarian Technology Conference.

Topic areas likely to be on the agenda include...

  • Existing Response Technology Projects
  • Situational Awareness
  • Responsible Data Lifecycles
  • Easier After-Action Reports
  • Self-Care for Organizers
  • Participant-Led Sessions: More than half of the agenda will be built by participants before and during the event, covering topics, tools, themes and issues proposed by those present.
  • Learning by Making: Hands-on workshops for sharing essential technology skills.

More, more more! Tell us what other hands-on tech skills you would like to learn, and we'll try to find facilitators to get you there.

You can also read more about the agenda and sessions.

Let is know what should be on the agenda and how we can make this event more relevant and valuable for you!
