Project

Using remote sensing to prepare for and respond to extreme events

Status: Active
Operational Plan: 2019 - 2020

Remote sensing applications for early warning systems and climate change monitoring play a significant role in disaster management. A number of applications exist, but providing relevant and timely geospatial information to first responders remains a challenge because of a lack of infrastructure allowing them to connect to these technologies. The objective of this project is to improve the capacity of emergency managers, first responders, and decision-makers to use real-time satellite imagery to complement existing tools and practices for preparedness and response to extreme events in disaster-prone regions.
