Digital Democracy for Disasters Workshop presented by Soroptimist International South East Asia Pacific at the UN during CSW67 in New York.
Of the 13 countries in our Federation, all bar one Mongolia have long low coastlines, all 13 countries experience disasters on a regular basis, cyclones, earthquakes, fires, floods, droughts, volcanic eruptions, and pandemics. Recovering from disasters is challenging, for both the responders and their communities, as they attempt to rebuild resilience, Soroptimists act as responders to disasters, supporting their communities, to recover from the damage done.
Within this context, improved digital disaster warning, and crisis management systems could provide critical support to the region as it prepares for future disasters.
Listen to the presentation from Christine Johnstone – SISEAP President background in IT, Dr Donnell Davis – SISEAP Programme Director, Climate expert, Dr Ramona Maranda – UNDRR Stakeholder group for United Nations Disaster Risk Recovery SENDAI framework, gender-responsive mid-term review and Judy Toll – SISEAP Delegate to CSW.
