Nine countries that all face the impacts of disasters have participated in a country level study. The countries include: Australia, Chile, Colombia, Indonesia, India, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Tunisia and Turkey.
Land Resilience Tools
A process for improving land resilience has been developed through implementation of 4 land resilience tools: the Contextual Analysis Questionnaire, the Pre and Post Disaster Recommendations for Land Resilience, the Land Resilience Maturity Index, and the Country Action Plan Template.
The Land Resilience Executive Summary, a stand-alone strategic document summarizing the key outcomes of the Land Resilience project has been released.
To complement the overarching Flagship Report which presents the key outcomes of this project an executive summary document will also be released. The document will summarize the key outputs of the work and will be available for download from the website alongside previously released reports.
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.
