Strengthening Multi-hazard Risk Assessment and Early Warning Systems with Applications of Space and Geographic Information Systems in Pacific Island Countries

The project aimed at strengthening multi-hazard risk assessment and early warning systems of Pacific Island Countries (PICs) by enhancing the capacities of responsible agencies/institutes through

  1. Capacity building on geo-spatial technologies, Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) modelling and early warning through Common Alerting Protocol (CAP)
  2. Deploying geospatial data sharing platforms for disaster risk management (Geo-DRMs) in the Pacific region; and
  3. Operationalizing if Numerical Weather Prediction model called WRF.
