Imagining new ways to link NASA and humanitarian work

NASA and the Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre hosted a joint workshop to explore new ways to link disaster risk reduction, preparedness, and response with NASA’s Earth Observation (EO) capabilities. Convened at the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama beginning August 21, this four-day event improved the ability of NASA EO scientists and coordinators to understand and address the needs of on-the-ground stakeholders. The workshop also helped to facilitate improved communication and partnership between the NASA Disasters program and SERVIR to design and implement future collaborations.
