In recent years Earth Observation satellites have become a new asset at the disposal of emergency response teams. Satellites support rapid damage-mapping to help guide rescue efforts.
With the increasing of population growth, rapid and unplanned urbanisation, climate change, environmental degradation and widespread poverty, a growing number of people and assets are exposed to disasters: many of these events occur in or exacerbate fragile and conflict-affected states, thus increasing the complexity of crises and overburdening countries experiencing violent conflict or fragile governance.
MEEO is supporting the challenge to increase the climate resilience by providing innovative services to monitor natural extreme events like floods, intense precipitations, wildfires, drought, heatwaves, volcanoes eruptions and earthquakes. Indeed, by understanding the occurrence and frequency of natural hazards it is possible to estimate the risks, vulnerabilities and potential impact on people and assets and to improve preparedness.
