Case Study Countries
Seven countries that all face the impacts of disasters will participate in the country level case study. The countries will include: India, Myanmar, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Nepal, Norway, and Turkey.
Case Study Template
To guide the country case studies, a template has been developed to direct data collection and guide inquiry. The template focuses on two key areas of investigation: the role of land administration and geospatial information and disaster risk management practices.
The Improving Resilience and Resilience Impact of National Land and Geospatial Systems project aims to develop a roadmap which demonstrates how national land and geospatial systems could improve resilience to disasters.
Disaster events such as earthquakes, floods, droughts, landslides and hurricanes around the world are increasing in frequency and severity. This is sometimes a direct result of manmade activities such as unplanned urbanization and land-use, climate change, struggling agricultural production systems, population growth, and over exploitation of natural resources.
