In a time of disaster or crisis we are better placed to utilise data that helps us, compared to previous events.
For instance, having real-time information has helped countries trace, track and develop responses to limit the spread of covid-19. The possibilities to better coordinate resources and make smarter decisions is obvious when having to suddenly deal with a fast-spreading and unknown virus. There is also the element of gaining the public trust for data collection and that it will be used for good policy.
In this webinar we will look at some of the learnings from this pandemic, how data has been collected, the role of data in disaster preparedness, and how human activity (eg: smartphone use) plays a role in a humanitarian outcome.
