Applying the open data principles in strengthening the urban resilience to natural and anthropic hazards
2021-10-01, 13:55–14:00, Group on Earth Observations

Like in many regions in the world; the African great lakes regions in general and the Lake Tanganyika coastal cities are confronted the rapid rise of waters since 2012. In this 2021, the water of lake Tanganyika is rising up to 1.5m, flooding various social basic infrastructures in many coastal cities in Burundi; Tanzania, the democratic republic of the Congo and Zambia.
The proposed talk will show how we can apply the open data principles in strengthening the resilience of vulnerable and already affected communities to coastal and river floods.
