Abstract
Description
The United States is considering initiating and developing a global disaster information network (GDIN). The basic decision is to be made in early 1998. As part of that consideration the Disaster Research Center (DRC) was asked about problematical aspects of establishing a GDIN, especially in the going from the domestic national level to the international or global scene. In many respects what is being proposed is an instance of technology transfer.
