Booklet "Effective use of Space-based information to monitor disasters and its impacts: Lessons Learnt from Drought in Iran" prepared by Iranian Space Agency now published. This is the second booklet of the series of publications on experiences and best practices by UN-SPIDER's RSOs in the application of Space-based information in disaster risk reduction and emergency response.
Free satellite data obtained from earth observation satellites is useful for monitoring a wide range of hazards including floods, drought, fires, storms, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, and has the added bonus in that it is freely accessible to anyone who wishes to use the data. This ease of access of free satellite data makes it a valuable tool to use for all phases of the disaster management cycle.
From 17 to 22 September 2015, UNOOSA/UN-SPIDER organised a training programme on ‘Earth observation technologies for earthquake damage assessment’ jointly with the National Disaster Reduction Center of China (NDRCC), Asia Pacific Space Cooperation Organisation (APSCO) and Regional Centre for Space Science and Technology Education in Asia and the Pacific (China) (affiliated to the United Nations).
The United Nations International Conference on Space-based Technologies for Disaster Management - "A consolidating role in the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction: 2015-2030 “ was successfully conducted from 14 to 16 September 2015.
UN-SPIDER, UNDP and the Department of Disaster Management (DDM) (Ministry of Home and Cultural Affairs) conducted follow up activities and a training workshop as a next step after the UN-SPIDER Technical Advisory Mission (TAM) to Bhutan, offered in June 2014. The activities were executed from 17 to 21 August, 2015.
