DMDN Meeting 12: Data Preparedness for Disasters in Mexico
Mexico is among the most disaster affected countries on earth, as well as among the most sophisticated users of data for disaster preparedness and response. On March 22 and 23, CrisisReady, GFDRR, and Mexico's National Center for Prevention of Disasters (CENAPRED) hosted a workshop to advance the use of mobility data and new applications of remotely sensed geospatial imagery to improve Mexico’s disaster management frameworks.

The workshop with CENAPRED in Mexico City is the first in a series of regional workshops that CrisisReady and GFDRR are hosting around the world. These workshops are designed to facilitate dialogue about the use of novel data in public health and emergency response, and to build analytical capacities through translational networks while establishing research partnerships and creating frameworks for policy advocacy.

Please join us for a discussion of key issues in the use of novel data sources for public health emergencies and disasters in Mexico, along with key representatives from the Mexico City workshop from CENAPRED, Inegi (Mexico’s national geospatial and statistics agency), and the World Bank.

Joining the discussion are the following:

• Constanza A. Elsa Rivera Pereira, Coordinator of Public Policies for Disaster Prevention, Mexico's National Center for Prevention of Disasters (CENAPRED)
• Abel Coronado, Deputy Director in Data Science, National Institute of Statistics and Geography, Mexico (INEGI)
• Salvador Pérez Maldonado, Senior Consultant in Financial Management of Disaster Risks, World Bank

This event is co-sponsored by the World Bank.
