> Meet the Disaster Resilience App Challenge
> Communities in every country are impacted by disasters. The forecast for 
> continued climate-related disasters is that they will continue to worsen. You 
> can help by joining Esri and other developers meet the Global Disaster 
> Resilience App Challenge. Your challenge is to build map tools that help 
> communities see, understand, and prepare for a variety of disasters.
> Esri is helping developers like you meet the challenge by offering them 
> ArcGIS platform developer tools. In addition, Esri will present a $10,000 
> award each for the best professional/scientific app and the best 
> consumer/public-facing app.
> The United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) provides a 
> list of essential strategies that apps should address. For example, apps are 
> needed that build local alliances, help people reduce fire risk around their 
> homes, and use data for flood drainage analysis. You will find UNISDR's 
> essential list, more app ideas, and other details on the Esri Global Disaster 
> Resilience App Challenge website.
> The submission deadline is August 27, 5:00 p.m. (Pacific Daylight Time).
