    Description
    Data for the Planet: driving solutions for resilient cities, disaster risk reduction and infectious diseases
    The digital revolution offers profound opportunities for science to discover hitherto unsuspected patterns and relationships in nature and society, on scales from the nanoscale to the cosmic, from local health systems to global sustainability. It has created the potential for the disciplines of science to achieve more holistic understanding of the complexity that underlies the challenges that confront humanity by exposing their deep structure through the integration of data across relevant disciplines.

    The International Science Council's (ISC) CODATA Data Integration Project is tackling how integrating diverse data from globally distributed sources can help to combat infectious diseases, natural disasters and to build resilient and adaptive cities, and how it can tie these solutions to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The project is preparing the ground for a major ISC and CODATA initiative to advance ‘data-driven interdisciplinarity' to address global challenges.

    Discussion of the presentations may address questions such as

    • Why were these tools developed?  What gap or need do they address?
    • Who are the target users?
    • Are there cases that suit adoption of one tool over the other?
    • What lessons have you learned?
    • How do you approach maintenance and sustainability of these tools?
