UN Mappers Lab
[Keynotes and workshop with UN Mappers – United Nations]
The workshop “Participatory Mapping in Humanitarian Activities: the UN Mappers Initiative” is part of the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master’s Degree on Climate Change and Diversity: Sustainable Territorial Development (CCD-STeDe). Becoming a mapper, acting in theatres of conflict using the power of new geographic information technologies, contributing first-hand to UN peackeeeping operations: all this is possible with the Unmappers initiative. Dr. Rachele Amerini of the UN Mappers group explains how to become a mapper and thus contribute to the Open Street Map platform and more specifically to the Humanitarian Open Street Map. The international team is dedicated to humanitarian action in remote areas and community development through participatory mapping initiatives and provides open source mapping data that help and support the management of conflicts, environmental disasters, hydrogeological risks and contribute to the SGDs, the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda.
