In this episode we talk about Missing Maps - the collaboration between the humanitarian and mapping communities to preemptively map parts of the world where disasters and disease epidemics might occur. Andrew Braye from the British Red Cross tells us how this collaboration started during the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. Steve Kenei ,from International Center for Humanitarian Affairs tells us how this collaboration has led to mapping of areas vulnerable to flooding before the rainy season in Kenya. And Irene Amuron of the Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre, shares her perspective on how Missing Maps has added the missing piece to anticipatory, forecast-based action. Listen to find out more.
