How can crowdsourcing provide more efficient disaster risk management?

Extreme climatic events are expected to increase in the future due to climate change. The challenge then becomes strengthening communities’ resilience to disasters, to prevent hazards from disrupting their normal functioning. Citizen participation through crowdsourcing of information is a promising avenue for the development of new disaster risk management strategies, and this contest seeks proposals that reveal the full potential of crowdsourcing for disaster preparedness, response and recovery.
