Code for Resilience (CfR) fosters a global community of citizens, governments, and technologists using open innovation, open data, and open software and hardware tools to identify and reduce the risks posed by natural disasters. The program works with local disaster management authorities to understand local disaster risk, and engages citizens and technologists in building or adapting existing technology tools that can reduce natural hazard risks to local communities. CfR is guided by the principles of community-led design and open innovation, and contributes to the global commons of information, knowledge, tools, and trained specialists using technology for disaster risk management.
The program is an initiative of the Global Facility for Disaster Risk Reduction (GFDRR), a trust fund housed in World Bank headquarters in Washington, DC. Learn more about mentorship, fellowship, and code sprint activities at www.codeforresilience.org.
