UNICEF Data Severity Index

Goal

The Data Severity Index will increase the efficiency of government action by prioritizing disaster risk reduction data and allowing for more intelligent filtering.

Too much data can overwhelm and challenge the human resources at a government agency, limiting their ability to act timely on disaster risk reduction and in engagement with their local community. The Data Severity Index will increase the efficiency of government action by prioritizing disaster risk reduction data and allowing for more intelligent filtering. Building on an existing reporting system, Open Locast, the platform will be field-tested in two cities, Rio de Janeiro, Brasil and Port-au-Prince, Haiti, where youth are reporting local issues.
