Hi Jeff, Hi Jeroen, Hi Venka, Hi all
With regard to the work package “disaster managment”, covered by www.unisdr.org/ ,
the following “UNISDR Science and Technology Conference on the implementation of the
Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030” could be important for us:
The event will take place on 27-29 January 2016 in Geneva, Switzerland.
Of course, there are many other UN activities where FOSS could be very useful.
Nevertheless, disaster management is an important point with links to main other areas.
“Link Open Data” approaches with “crowd sourced data” will surely an important point.
Submission of abstracts is still possible till 30 November 2015.

have drafted an initial wiki page for the committee, that
gives some background. Please, if you are interested
in helping promote Open Source geospatial at the UN with its
members states, definitely add your name to the wiki
page. We will likely organize the first committee
meeting sometime in November. Thanks!
