Big Data for Resilience Storybook
The Big Data for Resilience Storybook explores the links between Big Data and resilience building through a new resilience lens.
Aimed at an audience of resilience and development practitioners, the Storybook offers diverse experiences and practice-based recommendations to leverage Big Data’s potential and address its risks as part of efforts to build resilience. The Storybook is a collaborative initiative that features the experiences of seven international organizations working at the intersection of Big Data and resilience in vulnerable settings:
