UNDP/Japan Project to Accelerate Digitalization in DRR

DX4Resilience

Background

As the world grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic, digital technologies are helping people to stay connected. The UN Secretary-General's Roadmap for Digital Cooperation paves the way to promote a safer and more equitable digital world, one which will lead to a brighter and more prosperous future for all. The roadmap aims to achieve universal connectivity by 2030, ensuring digital inclusion for all, including the most vulnerable. UNDP is splicing digital into its corporate DNA—harnessing its potential to do good for more people, better and faster. In Asia and the Pacific, we are using data for a digital transformation to reduce disaster risks and help people understand what happened, why it happened, and how to respond, prepare and recover. We work for better data management, ensuring everyone can access and share the data they need to protect themselves and save their livelihoods. 

Mission

DX4Resilience is helping vulnerable communities to become more resilient by using technology to better respond, prepare and recover from disasters in Asia-Pacific. The initiative is a partnership between UNDP and the Government of Japan and being implemented in Indonesia, Nepal, Philippines and Sri Lanka.
