Connecting Grassroots & Government for Disaster Response

Published by The Wilson Center
A new report from the Wilson Center’s Commons Lab, “Connecting Grassroots and Government for Disaster Response,” examines the questions that arise when building an interface between government agencies and digital humanitarian groups that provide social media and other technical support.

“The interconnectedness of societies is transforming disaster response. Billions of people have direct access to cellular phones and communications networks. Billions of networked devices participate in this ecosystem as automated intelligent agents. Via face-to-face relationships with other community members, millions have indirect access to messages."
