Pandemic and Climate Recovery through FOSS4G Local Knowledge Stewardship and Employment Models
2021-09-30, 14:30–15:00, Puerto Madryn

The Open Knowledge Kit Regeneration Program addresses key challenges in the pandemic and climate crisis: How to collect near real-time data, how to create research, policy and programs that reflect the central role of women in the economic and social prosperity of their communities, how to address the political and funding barriers in hazard and climate change modeling, and how to develop fully local research teams to address revolving door outsider and expat models in vulnerable communities.

This talk will showcase free and open source tools: OpenDataKit, 3DStreetView and OpenDroneMap to cover some of those challenges.
