Data for the Horn

In order to build resilience to disasters in a changing climate, policy-makers and the public must have access to the accurate and up to date information. The Open Data for Resilience Initiative (OpenDRI) is a global partnership that seeks to build data sharing programs along with the capacity and tools to use data to make more informed decisions. The purpose of this platform is to facilitate open access to geospatial information, data and knowledge sources, about the ongoing response to the drought in the Horn of Africa. This site is the result of collaboration between development agencies, humanitarian organizations, and technology developers and can be used by anyone to access or upload data and visualize the information contained within.

This site lets you upload, manage, and browse geospatial data. Search for data that is valuable to you- in a number of geospatial formats- or upload your own data for use in creating your own map on this site.
