Humanitarian Applications Using NASA Earth Observations

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis

Conflict, war, and forced displacement affect millions of people each year and have immediate and long-term consequences for human health and development, in addition to causing the degradation of natural and managed landscapes. Analysis with NASA satellite imagery can help target humanitarian response and relief by i) offering a timely understanding of region-specific environmental conditions and change, and ii) capturing contextual information over broad geographic regions and time spans.

The Climate Risk & Early Warning System (CREWS) Initiative Joins the Risk-informed Early Action Partnership (REAP)

Impact-based forecasts that inform the public of what the weather will do rather than what weather will be are vital to save lives and livelihoods. Yet one in three people are still not adequately covered by early warning systems. Being prepared and able to act at the right time, in the right place, can save many lives and protect the livelihoods of communities everywhere, both now and in the future.
