We know that the lack of integration and management of data across agencies, institutions, research centers, and NGOs hinders our ability to actually use the immensely valuable data we already have available to us. To be as effective as possible in getting this work done, the Climate and Wildfire Institute (CWI) has facilitated the development of the Data Hub to utilize an information modeling approach informed by on-the-ground conditions and forecasts. CWI will provide the overall management and coordination of the Data Hub development—a key CWI role will be the facilitation of contributions to the Data Hub by partners and the support of the Advisory Panel.
