Satellites help in the assessment of risk of epidemics

With Vecmap researchers will be able to map high-risk areas

A new method has been developed to assess the risk of potential epidemics with the help of satellites. It has been developed by a consortium led by Avia-GIS in Belgium and supported by ESA.

The Vecmap, as the method is called, is an all-encompassing software and services package, which includes a smartphone app for field studies with a time and location information system, all linked to an online database. It will be used to predict the distribution of species that are essential in assessing the risk of potential epidemics.

Disaster Risk Management and Environmental Assessment for Spatial Planning

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
English

There is an urgent need to integrate hazard assessment and disaster risk management into strategic planning and sustainable development. Our exposure and vulnerability to extreme events - including both natural and human-induced hazards - continue to increase. Worldwide the impact of disasters is rapidly growing. However, many countries and development agencies so far do not consider hazard and disaster risk in development planning, and lack sufficient strategies to plan, assess, prevent or mitigate the effects of extreme events.

Training Target Audience: 

Professionals who are involved in development planning (including environmental and risk assessment and management) and who wish to acquire procedural knowledge and skills in risk assessment, risk management and planning are invited to join this course. The course will strengthen the capability of environmental assessment practitioners to incorporate hazard and risk considerations in SEA and EIA. It will also illustrate hazard and risk practitioners how SEA and EIA may provide a framework for strategic planning of vulnerability to hazards and of the potential impact of various activities on disaster vulnerability. Course participants are professionals working in governmental and non-governmental organizations, as well as planners, civil engineers, architects, geographers, environmental specialists and university lecturers.

E-Learning course: Risk analysis

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
English

During the last decade risk analysis has emerged as an effective and comprehensive procedure to guide the overall societal response to, and management of disasters. Risk analysis is carried out to reduce (a) casualties from potential disasters, (b) disruption to the economic and social activities, and to mainstream (c) the culture of safety in all activities undertaken by city and national governments. It became part of decision making in sectors such as healthcare, environment, physical infrastructure systems, to cite a few.
