Aimed at an audience of resilience and development practitioners, this document offers diverse experiences and practice-based recommendations to leverage Big Data’s potential and address its risks as part of efforts to build resilience. The Storybook is a collaborative initiative that features case studies of seven international organizations working at the intersection of Big Data and resilience in vulnerable settings:
Donors will need to provide USD 4 billion of the total—a 45 per cent increase over current spending of USD 8.6 billion on global hunger programs—based on the traditional share of donor spending in developing countries.
The International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) and the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) joined forces to estimate what it would cost to end hunger by 2030. The research was supported by the New Venture Fund.

By redrawing maps of water availability, food security, disease prevalence, population distribution and coastal boundaries, climate change may hold serious implications for regional security.
