We need to unleash the finance which will make all of this possible and power the shift to a zero-carbon economy.

Vivid Bangladesh, Vivid Economics

Vivid Economics and a consortium of partners have received funding from the UK Space Agency to design a parametric insurance product for emergency flood relief costs in Bangladesh. The project aims to make post-disaster response faster, cheaper, and more efficient.

Exposure and Multi-hazard Data for Disaster Risk Management (METEOR) (British Geological Survey) (IPP funded)

Overview The overall aim of METEOR [Modelling Exposure Through Earth Observation Routines] is to provide robust national-scale exposure and multi-hazard information based on Earth observation (EO) data. Consistent, reliable information on exposure (building location and construction type) along with multi-hazard knowledge (i.e. how hazards such as earthquakes and landslides occur and interact) is vital when […]

SIBELIUs (eOsphere) (IPP funded) Overview Improved severe-weather resilience for herding communities using satellite Earth observation (EO). The solution provides improved capacity for distributing new and upgraded environmental information products. Solution provides information regarding pasture, snow and drought, including absolute regional averages, anomalies and trends, to stakeholders supporting herding communities including the insurance sector, government agencies coordinating livestock and […]

CommonSensing (UNITAR) (IPP funded) Overview The overall aim of CommonSensing is to improve national resilience towards climate change, including disaster risk reduction, and contribute to sustainable development in Small Island Developing States (SIDS), through the use of satellite Earth observation (EO). This is done by assessing climate predictions, coupled with hazard mapping and food security analysis to provide […]
