Caribbean OpenDRI Community


Welcome! :) The Caribbean Open Data for Resilience Initiative (OpenDRI) Community provides a virtual platform for data and disaster risk management (DRM) practitioners to exchange knowledge on applying spatial data in decision making to improve disaster and climate resilience.

Our members share good practices and tools on using open-source technologies to improve data management and sharing across ministries and agencies.

This Community provides up-to-date resources, ongoing webinars and a venue to help our members connect with colleagues around the region.


This forum aims to bring GIS practitioners and IT professionals from the Caribbean region to discuss open-source data management, including geospatial data, GIS infrastructure, data-sharing and metadata policies, education, training and technical requirements across the entire region.
