Towards risk-informed development: making use of geospatial data in development planning in Bosnia-Herzegovina

Source(s):  Department of Geoinformatics, University of Salzburg (Z_GIS)

This paper presents recently developed inter-agency and multi-sectoral spatial risk assessments for Bosnia-Herzegovina (BiH), which have proven to be effective research and communication tools with high relevance for policy makers and programme managers. From the perspective of the United Nations in Bosnia-Herzegovina, geospatial hazard and exposure assessments are presented to identify and visualize a range of natural hazards and socio-economic factors. This paper presents action-oriented, geospatial research and illustrates how the use of “big and open data” has a cost-saving potential for the DRR community.
