Strategic framework on geospatial information and services for disasters

Source(s):  United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC)

This resolution adopted by the UN Economic and Social Council outlines a strategic framework to optimize the benefits of the use of geospatial information and services by Member States and other entities concerned across all phases of disaster risk management. This framework contributes to the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 and assists in addressing knowledge gaps in disaster risk management by improving systems and networks for the collection and analysis of information on disasters, vulnerabilities and disaster risks to facilitate informed decision-making.

The framework outlines the expected outcome, goal and six proposed targets for measuring progress in the use of geospatial information and services. The framework further outlines five priorities for action and their implementation, and the role of stakeholders.
