This manual sets basic standards for open source creation and communication of disaster and climate change information. It builds on the World Bank’s Open Data initiative and seeks to: improve disaster and climate change resilience; ensure streamlined data sharing and collaboration among government agencies, the private sector, academia and civil society; and encourage data collaboration with humanitarian efforts. The Guide draws on a number of projects which provide tools to empower both governments and communities to develop mitigation strategies for storms, flooding, droughts and other natural hazards.
