Guidance on spatial technologies for disaster risk management in aquaculture

Source(s):  Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations - Headquarters (FAO)

The FAO Guidance on spatial technologies for disaster risk management in aquaculture provides concepts and technical information to raise awareness and improve knowledge of the spatial technologies available to decision-makers, managers and technical personnel involved in disaster risk management (DRM) for aquaculture. It highlights key concepts, case studies and policy recommendations for using these technologies in the aquaculture sector.

The guide addresses the use of spatial technologies that support those working to reduce disaster risks and respond to emergencies. It lays down the principles for using spatial technologies in DRM and will therefore remain relevant even in the context of rapid technological innovation and the advancement of these technologies. 

The processes and steps for using spatial technology within DRM for aquaculture are described and explained, taking into account factors such as accessibility, limitations, complementary data and tools, human resources and financial resources. 

Case studies in Bangladesh, the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean, and Indonesia illustrate the local, national, and regional application of spatial technologies in DRM for aquaculture. Each case study recommends steps for using spatial technologies to support the DRM process.
