Network: “Who does what in the UN-SPIDER network?”
The Network section provides links to the UN-SPIDER Regional Support Offices and National Focal Points, as well as access to an extensive contact database. If, for example, a member of the disaster management community wants to contact a UN-SPIDER National Focal Point or Regional Support Office, they can instantaneously find the contact data of the respective institutions as well as the basic information about them in the Knowledge Portal.
Furthermore, a communication platform is offered to Communities of Practice that need a joint working space to communicate and share content amongst themselves or with an open community. In addition, UN-SPIDER provides space on the Portal to Communities of Practice that wish to cooperate on a certain topic related to the mandate of the Programme.
