Using software to prepare for Climate Change impacts and natural disaster: Deep Dive
At a time of rising climate change impacts, there is a vital and growing need to prepare for, respond to, and recover from natural disasters. But there is a critical communication gap between authorities, citizens, and communities.
Drawing on the ongoing results of our massive multi-year climate change research project, and with assistance from hundreds of students, citizens, academics, NGOs, government officials, and industry partners, Deploy Solutions has identified the top perceived climate change-related communication problems. We have explored numerous ways software can help overcome these key barriers to trust and misinformation and offer practical and life-saving advice to protect citizens and society.
We are building a prototype to show how authorities can improve communication with the general public and citizen scientists before, during, or after a flood. This deep dive session provides updates and shows our development progress on key concepts. Learn and be inspired by the practical ways software can help our citizens and communities weather climate change impacts and natural disasters!
