The CODATA Task Group on Linked Open Data for Global Disaster Risk Research (LODGD) will be working with the Integrated Research on Disaster Risk (IRDR), the Institute of Remote Sensing and Digital Earth (RADI) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), Tonkin+Taylor International, and LODGD partners, to produce a series of policy briefs on disaster risk reduction in 2020.  The first policy brief is expected to be released in August 2020. The global pandemic is a powerful reminder of the necessity of the international community’s intensified and sustained commitment to emergency preparedness. 

We are thus inviting experts in disaster risk reduction data and policy issues to collaborate on preparing these documents.  Please see further information and timelines below.
