ESIP Response to NASA request re: DRR Summit; see https://disasters.nasa.gov/argentina-summit-2017

We are looking at ways ESIP can respond to this request to participate in the disaster risk reduction and response activity, including the development of plans for the Sep 4-8 summit in Buenos Aires and follow up efforts.

Do ESIP members have relevant data sets or tools & services that might be contributed? - GeoCollaborate; WorldView; SEDAC Hazards Mapper, HazPop mobile app, and Population Estimation Service; ISciences Global Water Monitor & Forecast Are there activities with CEOS or GEOSS that might be leveraged? Can we apply our expertise in developing use cases and evaluating products and processes in testbed scenarios? Request insight to exercise planning/progress Do you have ideas for how ESIP might support the summit? Outreach to ESIP and other parties - iSciences, ImageCat
