Space & Disaster Risk Reduction
Space & DRR
Welcome to the ICPEM Special Interest Group.
We are focused on two aspects relating to outer space:
Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) of threats from space, and
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.
