ESSI1.1Exploiting space- and ground-based information for effective disaster risk reduction and preparedness
|Convener: Massimiliano Pittore|
/ Attendance Tue, 29 Apr, 17:30–19:00
The potential for exploiting space technologies within the context of disaster risk reduction is far from being exhausted, especially in less-developed countries. Moreover, vulnerability and risk assessment cannot exclude the need for collecting ground-based data and ancillary information. Successfully acquiring and integrating such heterogeneous data sources to provide timely and reliable geospatial information to decision-makers is an endeavour requiring a truly multidisciplinary approach.
This session calls for contributions on the following topics:
- application of remote sensing to vulnerability monitoring and recovery assessment
- integration of space- and ground-based data
- management of geospatial information throughout the disaster management cycle
Innovative methodologies and case studies are especially welcome.
