Beyond Borders Satellite Applications for Humanitarian Emergencies: Philippines Typhoon Haiyan case study

The UK Humanitarian Innovation Hub is a pilot programme, funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) and hosted by Elrha, that seeks to identify the biggest challenges within and opportunities to address global humanitarian responses.

Beyond Borders is a project funded by HIH with the objective to provide a consolidated view on the current use of satellite applications in humanitarian settings. UKHIH selected a consortium of organisations to author this report, including Caribou Space, Satellite Applications Catapult (SAC), and the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR).

David Garcia, a team member, has documented a specific case study regarding use of satellite applications during and after Philippines Typhoon Haiyan.
