UAVs for Relief: Where Drone Technology and Collaboration Meet LIMITED

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or "drones" have been incorporated into a number of relief and development projects over the past two years. In order to build upon these efforts as a community of practice and improve coordination and effectiveness of this tool, new agreements, practices and institutional structures will need to be created. We must facilitate the deployment of UAV projects, share lessons learned from these deployments and share data within both protected and open formats. This session builds upon the two-day pre-Summit humanitarian UAV workshop and will facilitate the development of practical recommendations and plans for future interagency collaboration around UAV projects.
