More About TechEmerge Resilience India

The World Bank Group (WBG) is partnering with CES to launch a global challenge for tech innovators interested in bringing their solutions to emerging markets to help states, cities and communities reduce — and build their resilience to — climate and disaster risks.

This global challenge, also presented by the Government of India's National Disaster Management Authority, aims to catalyze the adoption of innovative and disruptive technologies to leapfrog government efforts for disaster risk identification, risk reduction, disaster preparedness, response, recovery and overall resilience building.

Although India has made remarkable progress in saving lives through proactive disaster preparedness and risk reduction, India is also looking at building greater resilience of its communities and infrastructure to extreme events through the use of emerging technologies.
