Transcript

  • 1. Integrated Risk Management for Africa 1
  • 2. IRMA key data • European Commission funded Research Project • 3 years • € 3.5M total budget - € 2.5M EC contribution • Started in June 2008 • 9 EU & 6 African Partners – including major players in the IP business – the governments of Luxembourg, Mozambique and Morocco participate to support the emergency service trials 2
  • 3. The IRMA Consortium 3 3
  • 4. IRMA Vision • ICT Environmental Risk Management • Though telecommunication infrastructure is limited • Though data is limited • In addition: new applications in support of regional development: – Environmental management – Regional planning – Next generation IP based networks
  • 5. IRMA Goals • ICT Multi-Risk Platform (mostly Open Source) • Integrate existing services and technologies (risk assessment to recovery) • Develop local services • Demonstrate value in 5 scenarios
  • 6. IRMA technical approach • Integration and adaptation to the specific conditions of Africa of the best R&D results coming from recent or on- going European R&D projects: – Overall service oriented architecture: WIN & ORCHESTRA – Earth observation service environment : ESA SSE, GENESIS – Sensor network software : SANY – Ad-hoc wireless networks : u2010 – IPv6 based solutions : u2010 – Automatic handling of network failure: u2010 6
  • 7. IRMA Expected Achievements • A coherent suite of architectural concepts and methodologies applicable to multi-risks management situations in Africa, including advanced multiple vulnerability assessment to cope with complex emergencies. • An integrated set of tools, compliant with the above mentioned concepts and methodologies and with current and emerging international standards. 7
  • 8. IRMA Expected Achievements • A pre-operational infrastructure and access-platform, assessed by end-users through operational scenarios serving as reference for further prototyping and future larger scale deployments • Specific applications (bushfire, flood, desertification and urban risks) dedicated to the demonstration of multi-risks management in Africa. 8
  • 9. IRMA Expected Achievements • A versatile communications system enabling high and/or low rates Internet transfer. • A reliable, low cost communications system enabling alert messages and possibly emergency communications in any location of Africa (i.e. even where no electricity is supplied) • A management concept to monitor and automatically control the functions of services and networks shown as critical through the dependability and vulnerability analysis. 9
