UNISDR and Esri call for apps for resilience
UNISDR specified in a press release: "Developers have until Wednesday 27 August 2014 to present the best professional/scientific app and the best consumer/public-facing app that can help communities to see, understand, and reduce the risk from a variety of disasters. Each category carries a cash award of US$10,000 for the best app.
The winners will be announced in mid-September, a week before UN Secretary–General Ban Ki-moon’s Climate Summit on 23 September 2014. The new Apps then will be made available to the 2,000 cities and towns which are part of UNISDR’s vibrant Making Cities Resilient campaign."
