Chemonics UK will be hosting a hybrid event, Strengthening Humanitarian Responses: Technology, Data and Evidence-Based Approaches, on 5 December 2023 at our offices in London and online via Teams Live Events. This event will convene international development and humanitarian partners, donors, practitioners, and researchers to explore current and emerging technology, data, and evidence-based approaches for informing emergency responses globally.

The event will explore examples of where technology, including artificial intelligence and satellite imaging, can improve countries’ responses to emergencies. This includes understanding the ability of technology to enhance aspects of responses through imagery of infrastructure damage, data on movement of people, and weather monitoring. The event will also examine how technology and data can support complex procurement and supply chains for emergency responses.

The panel will be chaired by Louise Quy, Managing Director, Chemonics UK and speakers will include:

  • Nigel Timmins, Humanitarian Consultant, CollaborANTS;
  • Ana de Paiva, Director of Operational Excellence, Connexi;
  • Andy Norris, Senior Geospatial ConsultantSatellite Applications Catapult;
