Climate and Disaster Resilience Pilot 2024

For more information please contact

The Call For Participation (CFP) is closed! Pilot Kickoff Date is February 28-29, 2024. See below for more information.

Our climate is evolving at a rapid pace, and with it comes unprecedented uncertainties through larger, and more frequent disasters. With the ever present threat of rising sea levels, droughts, wildfires, flooding, and more, we must accelerate our readiness for climate change and improve our resiliency to disasters. In order to achieve this we must enhance and improve the climate data value chain to create better climate and disaster information for decision makers.

As a follow on from 5+ years of successes through the Climate Resilience Pilot and series of Disaster Pilots and forms, OGC brings you the Climate and Disaster Resilience Pilot 2024 (CDRP24). The next phase of an ongoing OGC disaster and climate initiative, CDRP24 is focused on delivering impacts through interoperable geospatial technologies and standards, all to help combat climate and disasters.

CDRP24 will consist of individual threads that each work towards specific end-user, stakeholder, and technical goals that advance our climate and/or disaster understanding and readiness while also seeding collaboration between these two related domains.

While building upon the knowledge gained from past pilots, the intent of the Pilot is to:


Participants in the Climate and Disaster Resilience Pilot are co-funded by the Pilot’s Sponsors to provide staff time and expertise, contribute data and infrastructure components, and travel for meetings. The amount of funding for each participant is decided individually based on their scope of work. All participants are expected to provide in-kind support to the Pilot to match the OGC funding they receive. OGC membership fees may be covered through the funding.
