Watch: Establishing a Data Infrastructure to Effectively Respond to the Next Disaster


Toward a Disaster Resilient California:

Establishing a Data Infrastructure
to Effectively Respond to the Next Disaster

 

 

In the fight against COVID-19, the scientific community worked together to provide answers to the policy community and the public as rapidly as they could, yet difficulties in sharing data complicated their ability to do so. 

What can we do today that will allow for the scientific community’s response to be even faster and more coordinated in the face of similar disasters tomorrow? Watch our CCST Expert Briefing to learn more. Held Feb. 11, 2022.

Moderated by:

Michael Kleeman
UC Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation at UC San Diego
