On Friday, November 26th, Dr. Carolin Klonner (GIScience Research Group) and Melanie Eckle-Elze (HeiGIT) will be supporting the Urban Context Unit of German Red Cross (GRC) in the “Data and Digitalisation in Urban Humanitarian Action” session at the Virtual Conference of the Red Cross Red Crescent Urban Collaboration Platform 2021.
The focus of the session is on the potentials and limitations of digital solutions in the context of humanitarian assistance. Participants will have the chance to learn about different developments and deployments of digital solutions in urban humanitarian action but also the related complexities and challenges.
The panel and audience will discuss and share experiences about the (dis) advantages of digital solutions in humanitarian assistance and potential approaches to collaboratively overcome current hindrances.
