Satellite earth observations in support of disaster risk reduction

Source(s):  Committee on Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS)

This Handbook presents the main capabilities of satellite Earth observations, their applications, and a systematic overview of present and planned CEOS Agency Earth observation satellite missions and their instruments.

This edition explores how satellite EO contribute to disaster risk reduction in countries with varying capacity and infrastructure. It also highlights the main capabilities of satellite EO, their applications, and the challenges in converting satellite data into useful information and knowledge for disaster risk reduction.

The report has been compiled in support of the 3rd United Nations World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction, to assist the debates around how to better address the endemic challenges of risk reduction to ensure that future generations face fewer disasters and are better equipped to handle them.
