This year’s theme, Building Resilience: Inclusive Innovations in Crisis Mapping, is focused on the UN Sustainable Development Goals and will highlight how local populations can prepare for shocks to infrastructure and systems as well as the role of NGO’s, volunteers, and technical communities in partnering with the people from threatened areas. Thus, there is an expansion of field visits offered immediately following the conference that will bring participants to places affected by natural hazards to show first-hand the challenges and solutions found in this island nation. The decision to lengthen the duration and variety of field visits provides experiences unique for ICCM 2016 as fellow conference goers join together to witness how the concepts from ICCM can apply to sites around and beyond Manila.
The main host for ICCM 2016 is Map the Philippines. Map the Philippines (MapPH) is an international initiative to provide current, comprehensive and accessible maps of the Philippines for economic and tourist development, and disaster and community resilience. Working across local government, business, NGO, education and citizen sectors, MapPH helps provide coordinated cross sector collaboration, transparency and accountability for more sustainable public and private infrastructure development. MapPH’s free online platform launches in July 2016 and provides opportunities for citizens and organizations to identify funding needs, share programs, services and best practices, and connect with other stakeholders.
