Disaster and hazards mapping summit 2014

  • Type: Meeting or Conference
  • Date: 04-12 Dec 2014
  • Location: Philippines (Manila)
  • Venue: Manila Hotel

Description

The Disaster and hazards mapping summit 2014 is intended to develop better approaches to mapping risks and dangers to communities in the Philippines and other countries with tropical climates.

The databasing, mapping and full coordination of efforts towards use and sharing of a full function GIS on hazards, volcanoes, water, flood, forests in the Philippines and Asia, vulnerability areas, liquefaction potential, crisis and hot spots is long due because of the long-running phenomenon of climate change in the planet. This is also significant in that the Philippines, among other countries, lies in the Pacific Rim of Fire where a large number of earthquake faults lie.

The most important value of the conference is to determine the plan and the cost of implementing such a plan to make the Philippines and other participating nations safer from increasingly hazardous calamities.
