from IAEM

Elysa Jones, chair, IAEM-USA Standards and Practices Committee, represented the organization at the United Nations World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction, Mar. 14-18, 2015, in Japan. As chair of the IAEM committee, she identified areas where data standards are appropriate, where they are used, and where they are making a difference in the emergency management mission. Jones presented an overview of the OASIS EDXL (Emergency Data Exchange Language) family of standards at a side event sponsored by the UNISDR R!SE initiative. During the conference, Jones heard a presentation from secretary-general of the World Meteorological Organization, Mr. Michel Jarraud, who mentioned the OASIS Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) in his opening remarks to the WMO symposium. The conference developed the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, 2015-2030, which is now available. more
