Using software to prepare for Climate Change impacts and natural disaster: Deep Dive on our research findings and software prototype
Tickets for this workshop must be claimed in advance.
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 and citizens.
Drawing on the ongoing results of our massive multi-year climate change R&D project, and with assistance from hundreds of students, citizens, academics, NGOs, and government officials, 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 currently building a prototype to validate these concepts by exploring how authorities could communicate with the public before, during, or after a flood. Our "space app" demonstrates specific and practical ways satellite imagery, AI, web portals, geospatial data analysis and reporting tools, cloud-hosted infrastructure, and other features can be combined in a working software solution.
This deep dive webinar will explore the climate change research project prototype in greater detail. Topics will include:
• Key research findings and insights, including the top communication problems.
• Prototype and mockup demonstrations.
• The vital roles of citizens, NGOs, government and private sector partners, students, and academia in the R&D work.
• Practical insights and lessons learned running an international multi-year climate change research project remotely (and during a pandemic).
No technical knowledge is required, and we will set aside time to answer any questions you may have.
Learn and be inspired by the practical ways software can help citizens and society weather climate change impacts and n
