“As disaster risk grows, families and communities need to become more resilient; that is, they must improve their ability to prepare for, absorb, and recover from extreme events. In this year’s PennApps “Hack-for-Resilience” route, hackers have the chance to help people do just that, by developing apps, tools, and other technologies to help at-risk families.
Examples could include hacks to help people better understand the risks they face, the potential or historical impacts of disaster, the benefits of risk-reduction measures or insurance, or how to improve preparedness.”
