Climate and Disaster Resilience Pilot 2024

For more information please contact

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:

Key Pilot Milestones and Ongoing Activities

The Climate and Disaster Resilience Pilot is a key initiative of the OGC COSI program. In parallel with the current set of research and prototype development activities, the development of further deliverables and opportunities to participate are in development. These will be announced as they become available and are anticipated in the spring and summer of 2024.

OGC members can review work-in-progress and the demonstrations at the OGC Member Meeting are open to non-members.
