In this episode, we talked about climate change and how it contributes to geohazards around the world and how there is need for increase in the application of geospatial technology in the mapping, visualizing and identifying hazards and to contribute to early warning and risk management. The episode also focused on GRMI an initiative in Nigeria focused on reducing flood risk and contribution to flood risk management through the application of geospatial information technology.
Taiwo Ogunwumi who heads the initiative talks about how the team which is driven by passionate volunteers uses GIT in their work, the open datasets they use and the methodology they follow. The importance of volunteering our skills to help out and promote a sustainable environment is also touched upon
