Open data for resilience initiative field guide


"In many places in the world, we have limited data to tell us where to put our levers. Maps may be decades old in cities that are experiencing 3% to 5% annual population growth. Exposure data may be ‘guestimates’ that divide these old maps into 10km grid squares and then limit us to approximating an average vulnerability within each square. The risk assessments that build on this coarse data may not always tell us where our disaster risk management investments will give the best return in lives saved."
