Earth Observation and Big Data for improved financial resilience
November 23, 2020 @ 14:00 - 15:30 UTC+2
How to produce the right, meaningful and timely information when it comes addressing financial risks? Can satellite tech help us keep track of global supply chains?
This webinar will discuss opportunities and challenges related to earth observation and big data in the context of disaster risk financing, decision-support, anticipatory action, sector-specific loss assessment and loss transmission channels. Solutions, such as systemic risk modeling or convergence of evidence methods, will be discussed with a focus on isolated risks (e.g. flood risk) and compound risks (e.g. COVID19 vs. extreme climate).
It is the first of a webinar series jointly organized by the World Bank Finance, Competitiveness & Innovation Global Practice, together with the European Space Agency’s Center for Earth Observation (ESRIN).
