Drone Code of Conduct for Social Good

What is the Drone Code of Conduct for Social Good?

The Drone Code of Conduct for Social Good is a quick reference guide on how to use drones in the Social Good sector. The document’s intention is to inform on the safe, coordinated and effective use of drones in a wide range of humanitarian and development settings. The document is created so that it can be printed and folded into pamphlets. Or you can just print the inside and hang it up as a poster.

Who is it for?

This document is intended as a guideline for any individual or group using drones for social goods projects. You can download the PDF here and share, print and use it free of charge.

The origin

In March 2014, UAViators (founded by Patrick Meier of WeRobotics) drafted the first version of the Humanitarian UAV Code of Conduct. The document has since been shared widely and publicly disseminated as an open and editable Google Document to solicit feedback, undergoing several major revisions. The people involved in this tremendous effort include experts from global humanitarian organizations, technology companies, universities, and a plethora of other groups (the full list can be found on the Google Document). WeRobotics has adopted this code of conduct, renaming it the Drone Code of Conduct for Social Good, to promote and achieve our mission.
