  1. 1. Space Technologies for Disaster Management Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) UNISDR ESA UNISDR SpaceUp Paris – May 25-26, 2013
  2. 2. Introduction and Outline Great potential of Space applications • What is Disaster Management? • Which role play Space Technologies? • The Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) • Conclusions Space ApplicationsDisaster Management SGAC Conclusion
  3. 3. What are Disasters? Environmental events: earthquake, volcanic eruption, landslides, drought, cyclone, floods, wild fire, tsunami, … … and human-related events: humanitarian crisis, epidemic, famine or nuclear disaster • But also long lead events related to climate change and human activities such as erosion & land cover change, see level rise, oil spills, building instability… Space ApplicationsDisaster Management SGAC Conclusion Astrium Astrium Astrium
  4. 4. What cost Disasters? Space ApplicationsDisaster Management SGAC Conclusion Astrium Astrium Direct economic losses in 40 countries as estimated from national and global loss databases, 1981–2011 Source: United Nations Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction 2013 http://www.preventionweb.net/english/hyogo/gar/2013/en/gar-pdf/GAR2013_EN.pdf
  5. 5. What cost Disasters? Space ApplicationsDisaster Management SGAC Conclusion Astrium Astrium Source: United Nations Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction 2013 http://www.preventionweb.net/english/hyogo/gar/2013/en/gar-pdf/GAR2013_EN.pdf Hazard-related business disruptions: of major concern and that actually had been experienced during the last five years
  6. 6. What is Disaster Management? • Disaster Management activities • do not only cover the disastrous event but are seen as a cycle Include long term, long lead-time activities Involve organizations such as the United Nations (UN- SPIDER, UNISDR, UNESCO), International Charter, NGOs, private sector, etc. Space ApplicationsDisaster Management SGAC Conclusion Astrium
  7. 7. Which role play Space Technologies? • Navigation: positioning • Telecommunications: e.g. emergency communications • Earth Observation: e.g. remote sensing, meteorology • Science: e.g. atmosphere monitoring, gravity measurement Space ApplicationsDisaster Management SGAC Conclusion Astrium ESA DLR
  8. 8. Which role play Space Technologies? • Unique capabilities: weather independent and reliable measurements • Synergies with other technologies (e.g. in-situ, air- borne) Space ApplicationsDisaster Management SGAC Conclusion SRTM-Elevation Model, New Orleans DLR
  9. 9. Beyond Disaster Management… • Key word of resilience! • Space technologies are not sufficient… • Need for a global approach: • Long term public policies and monitoring strategies • Synergy of budgets • ICTs improvement • Increased role of private actors • Role of crowdsourcing Space ApplicationsDisaster Management SGAC Conclusion

  11. 11. The STDM Project Group The Space Technologies for Disaster Management Project Group (STDM) aims at raising awareness about how space technologies contribute throughout the Disaster Management cycle. The main objectives of the STDM Project Group are: • to inform general public about how space-derived information are valuable in Disaster Management, • to provide channel for new perspectives for research efforts used in space disaster management • to provide an interdisciplinary forum to those who have an interest in disaster management as well as space activities Join us on LinkedIn ….
