The 2020 United Nations/Austria Symposium "Space Applications for Sustainable Development Goal 13: Climate Action" organized by UNOOSA will take place from 1-3 September. It will discuss how space technologies support climate action.

Climate action is one of the most pressing priorities for action within the Sustainable Development Goals framework. The last 5 years were the hottest on record and 14 of the 15 hottest years have occurred since 2000. Average sea levels have risen by 23 cm since 1880 and by 9 cm in the last 25 years. Earth observation is an essential tool to monitor these changes: out of the 50 essential... read more

Recommended Practices

La gestión del riesgo de desastres suele contar con el apoyo de las tecnologías de teledetección durante las diferentes etapas de un desastre. Estas tecnologías junto con los datos geoespaciales encuentran su aplicación sobre todo durante la evaluación de riesgos, la elaboración de modelos de escenarios o la alerta temprana, a pesar de que las medidas preventivas también pueden apoyarse en estas innovaciones. Esta Práctica Recomendada de UN-SPIDER se centra en las medidas preventivas que pueden adoptarse de antemano, utilizando los datos de teledetección sobre las inundaciones y los datos...
Remote sensing technologies can support all stages of the disaster management cycle. In the prevention and preparedness phases, they often find their application in risk assessments, scenario modelling and early warning. This UN-SPIDER Recommended Practice explains how remote sensing data about recurring floods, information about infrastructure and socio-economic data can be integrated using free and open source software to support prevention and preparedness efforts. It makes use, among others, of the InaSAFE plug-in for the desktop GIS software QGIS to estimate the number of people and...
