Hello Hotties,

I am reaching out to the HOTOSM community for proposal ideas for the World
Bank Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) and UK
Department for International Development (DFID) Challenge Fund [1]:

*"This Challenge Fund seeks to provide small grants to projects that
address the challenge in bridging the gap between technology and
on-the-ground user needs in the field of disaster risk identification. This
can be achieved through the development of data, products and approaches to
support disaster risk management decision making and build resilience,
including better information, but also strengthening key steps in moving
from information to insight and behaviour change."*

Proposals should focus on the use of HOTOSM tools and mapping in accordance
with the following criteria:

   - A specific problem statement under GFDRR Pillar 1: Risk Identification
   - Geographical focus on developing countries with an emphasis on the
   Africa and Asia regions
   - Development of open access data, products, tools and approaches.

HOT is looking to submit two proposals. The first one looks at linking the
use of InaSAFE [2] and the currently missing community-driven resiliency
data that provides a voice in identifying local strengths and challenges in
Indonesia. This is important for bridging the gap between the technology
and the needs of the on-the-ground users, as it enables realistic and
locally-owned analysis of social vulnerability.

We would like to ask for your help in coming up with a second proposal
incorporating OpenStreetMap and HOT Tools.

Kind regards,

Mhairi O'Hara
