How can drones support humanitarian operations? What type of information are they able to collect? And how can humanitarian organizations make use of their benefits – without creating new risks?
To launch the fourth DigitHarium month, we have invited Dr. Wojciech Wiewiórowski, European Data Protection Supervisor, to discuss how drones, and other remote sensing technologies, can be used in humanitarian operations. In particular, we will focus on the type of information that this type of technology can give to humanitarians to inform and improve their activities, and what precautions it’s important to take to make sure that these data are not misused in ways that could put the people they belong to at risk.
The discussion will be the first event of the April thematic path – Drones, Remote Sensing Technologies and Humanitarian Protection.
The Digital Dilemmas Dialogues are a series of one-on-one discussions about the humanitarian digital transformation, its implications and the work ahead. This 30-odd minutes chat brings together prominent experts and stakeholders from various sectors to explore the humanitarian consequences of a new type or trend in digital technologies each month, and offer reflections on what is coming next.
The Digital Dilemmas Dialogues are an initiative of the DigitHarium (https://www.icrc.org/en/digitharium). This specific session will be part of April’s discussions on remote sensing technologies, partnerships and collaborations. All updates and news can be found on the official twitter page: https://twitter.com/DigitHarium.
For all parties interested in drones and what the advantages and challenges in using them can be for humanitarians.
