Space Satellite

Space & DRR

At ICPEM we are focused on two research perspective relating to outer space:

  1. Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) of threats from space, and​

  2. Use of space-based infrastructure for DRR pursuits

We are especially keen to bridge the gap between academia and industry to maximise opportunities to increase resilience to 

earth-bound hazards. In addition, we are keen to promote the huge opportunity to improve evidence-based decision-making by utilising the data rich resources from satellites at all stages of the disaster management cycle (improved prevention, mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery) to terrestrial hazards.


We are currently developing a set of events and the programme will be issued shortly.
