What is D-Tech?
Disaster technology (D-Tech) refers to the use of science and technology across different sectors to help prevent, prepare for, respond to, and recover from natural disasters. It includes a wide range of tools and innovations to save lives and livelihoods.

Why you should get involved
Amidst escalating threats of climate change-induced disasters worldwide, the imperative to raise awareness, enhance resilience, and bolster solutions for disaster mitigation has reached unprecedented levels. The repercussions extend beyond human lives, as countries grapple with exorbitant economic burdens. Despite the pressing demand, there remains a deficiency in both financial and non-financial support for scaling up effective solutions in this realm.
Technological innovation emerges as a pivotal player in advancing disaster preparedness, recovery, and resilience, aligning with the global Climate Adaptation and Resilience agenda. Collaborative efforts and technology utilization can foster the creation of more robust communities capable of withstanding and rebounding from disasters.
