  • Identify a vision and roadmap for developing the infrastructure to make preparedness and resilience data available to individuals, communities and organisations in the five platforms.
  • Explore the blocking issues and corresponding enablers in building an infrastructure environment that would support the 1 Billion Coalition ’s five platforms and their apps.
