We are pleased to announce that OSGeo has become a global partner of
Code for Resilience (C4R), an initiative co-founded by the World Bank's
Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) and ICT Unit
(TWICT), and Code for Japan.

The initiative is partnering local technologists with disaster risk
management (DRM) experts to strengthen community resilience to natural
disasters through the creation of civic-minded digital and hardware

Read about Code for Resilience events held in Peshawar, Dhaka, and
three cities in Japan in this World Bank feature story
or this write-up in DevEx

Stay up to date on the next hackathon events by following
@Code4Resilience on Twitter.

OSGeo developers and contributors are invited to take part to local
events, and/or participate to the third part of the initiative, namely
the Online Innovation Challenge. C4R organisers look for mentors from
various domains (web, app development..) - people who can guide
development and provide expertise.

This is an exciting opportunity to interface directly with some of the
developers who are hard at work building tools that address the
challenges we have identified as key to improving community resilience
to natural disasters.
