Natural and man-made disasters have become more frequent than ever before and the need for disaster preparedness has increased over the years. Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI), Robotics, Drones and Internet of Things (IoT) have the potential to revolutionize the domain of disaster risk prevention, reduction and response.
The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is hosting a series of webinars on these 4IR technologies presenting a chance to learn from, and engage with leading experts from around the world as they discuss opportunities and challenges associated with these technologies and their use in disaster management.
