Mexico is among the most disaster affected countries on earth, as well as among the most sophisticated users of data for disaster preparedness and response. On March 22 and 23, CrisisReady, GFDRR, and Mexico’s National Center for Prevention of Disasters (CENAPRED) hosted a workshop to advance the use of mobility data and new applications of remotely sensed geospatial imagery to improve Mexico’s disaster management frameworks.
The workshop with CENAPRED in Mexico City is the first in a series of regional workshops that CrisisReady and GFDRR are hosting around the world. These workshops are designed to facilitate dialogue about the use of novel data in public health and emergency response, and to build analytical capacities through translational networks while establishing research partnerships and creating frameworks for policy advocacy.
Please join us for a discussion on key issues in using novel data sources for public health emergencies and disasters in Mexico, along with representatives from CENAPRED, INEGI (Mexico’s national geospatial and statistics agency), and the World Bank, who participated in CrisisReady’s Mexico City workshop.
