Project Period: June 16 – Dec 18
Country: – Uttarakhand state, India
Partners: DHI, ERN, GIC-AIT
Client: The World Bank
As part of the Uttarakhand Disaster Recovery Project (UDRP) the Government of Uttarakhand (GoUK) is developing a Digital Risk Database for Uttarakhand comprising risk information for earthquakes, flash floods, floods, landslides and industrial hazards. The specific objectives are:
a) Developing risk information for earthquakes, floods, landslides, flash floods, and industrial hazards for the State of Uttarakhand.
b) Creating a Web based ‘Digital Risk Data Base (DRDB) for the State of Uttarakhand on a GIS platform which comprises hazard, vulnerability and risk information for earthquakes, floods, landslides, flash floods, and industrial hazards to support informed decision making for disaster risk management.
c) Provide detailed roadmap for sustaining and upgrading the DRDB.
d) Training of government agencies in the understanding, use and communication of risk information and improving their understanding of how risk information can be improved through time.

The project on Strengthening Multi-Hazard Risk Assessment and Early Warning Systems with Applications of Space and Geographic Information Systems in Pacific Island Countries, focuses to strengthen multi-hazard risk assessment and early warning systems of Pacific Island Countries (PICs) such as Cook Islands, Fiji, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu, and Vanuatu by enhancing the capacities of responsible institutes via capacity building training programs on space technologies such as Remote Sensing (RS) and Geographical Information Systems (GIS), and by deploying geospatial data sharing platforms for disaster risk management (Geo-DRMs) in the Pacific region.
Project Period: Oct 2015- Oct 2017
Countries: Armenia, Bangladesh, Fiji and the Philippines
The project aims to assist piloting countries to improve local capacity to collect and share reliable and timely disaster-related data using SBT and ICT at a local government and community level in a more cost-effective manner to strengthen their disaster resilience and support timely post-disaster response, recovery, and reconstruction efforts. The following activities are carried out: i) Develop a mobile application for preparing community-based OSM base map; ii) Develop a mobile application to collect attribute data for buildings and critical infrastructures; iii) Carry our crisis mapping; iv) Utilize satellite data for damage assessment, v) Develop a data server and data management system at local governments.
Project Period: Jan 2015 – Dec 2016
Countries: Philippines, Maldives and Myanmar
The CAP-on-a-MAP project implements the Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) given by OASIS; advocated by IFRC, ITU and WMO. The objective of the project is to operationalize a CAP-enabled Multi-Agency Situational Awareness (MASA) platform, Sahana Alerting and Messaging Broker (SAMBRO), in each beneficiary country in order to provide location specific alerts/warnings and integrate all the stakeholders through a common information exchange hub for better coordination.
Project Period: Sept 2014 – Dec 2017
Countries: Thailand, Vietnam, Laos and Philippines
The idea of the project is capacity building on utilizing Remote Sensing Data for the Agricultural Monitoring in the South East Asian countries. Optical Data like MODIS and Microwave Data like ALOS Data is used to demonstrate the applications. Additionally within the Project, customized software called INAHOR was developed to analysis SAR images in order to map Agriculture and to estimate the production. Various case studies were carried out to map and
estimate the rice production.
