The Dominican Republic is exposed to tropical storms and hurricanes that may trigger floods and storm surges.
In addition, it is exposed to earthquakes that can trigger tsunamis. In the Dominican Republic enacted the Lawwhich incorporates the establishment of an inter-institutional Leey for PreventionMitigation and Response. The mission included visits to 11 Government 174-02 and included an lej workshop organized by the National Emergency Commission CNEwhich was attended by a variety of institutions, including universities, NGOs and the private sector. Disaster -risk management is a topic that has 14-02 receiving more and more attention in recent years in the Dominican Republic, particularly through the enactment of the new Law in The law targets specifically two policies which are of relevance in the context of space-based information: Several government agencies have the capacity to access space-based data and generate information.
Several National Secretariats have the mandate to establish thematic information systems. Efforts are being conducted to implement the National Geospatial Database Infrastructure as a way to facilitate the sharing of information among government institutions.
Space and Major Disasters, and finds its Pdf maps useful particularly to make use of them in the field in case of disasters.
Several ldy, including NGOS, have generated a variety of hazardand risk maps from different regions ly the country. The mission recommended to CNE the promotion of the use of space-based information, in particular during disasters.
Taking note of the institutional mandates and arrangements and following examples from other countries in Latin America, CNE should establish an inter-institutional group that focuses on the processing of satellite imagery to generate relevant information. The institutionalization could be carried out through a Memorandum of Understanding or a similar approach and strengthen the skills of the group.
The Technical Committee on Prevention and Mitigation lley Risks should homogenize the different hazardand risk maps that have been elaborated by different agencies and organizations, and should promote the use of guidelines or standards in the elaboration of new maps of these kinds. The Technical Committee on Prevention and Mitigation of Risks should implement that National Integrated Information System and promote its use in risk management efforts throughout the country.
A national policy should be established by the Government towards the establishment of the National Geospatial Database Infrastructure, and a policy so that government agencies exchange information more easily. CNE should implemented a training programme to increase the skills of staff on the use of satellite imagery, including radar imagery in the case of floods. Chile is exposed to a variety of hazards including earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, landslides, forest fires, floods, and droughts.
Chile has been impacted by some of the strongest earthquakes ever le in recent history.
For a large earthquake in February the International Charter: The mission also included a field visit to the regions of Talca and Constitucion, which were heavily impacted by both the earthquake and the tsunami.
In addition, the mission included follow-up meetings in Washington D. ONEMI and the other agencies could greatly benefit from processing leey satellite imagery provided by a variety of space agencies to elaborate a mosaic map of satellite imagery donated as a way to identify which geographic areas are covered and where there are gaps that need to be filled.
To better present information to decision makers in case of emergency response, geo -viewers, such as the one developed by Esri, could be very useful to display information regarding the impacts of the event and additional layers.
The Government of Chile is recommended to continue its efforts towards the establishment of the Chilean Space Agency as a way to promote the use of space-based applications in a variety of areas, including disaster -risk management and emergency response.
ONEMI and other agencies could systematize lessons learned from the use of space-based information in the case of the earthquake and explore the use of other space-based technologies in case of emergency response including satellite leey and GNSS. Cameroon is exposed to floods in the far north, landslides in the western mountainous regions and to carbon dioxide emissions from the bottom of Lake Nyos likely to cause explosions. 14-02 andCameroon witnessed nearly ,ey significant disasters which, according to official figures, killed 4, people, affectedothers and caused economic damage in the range of millions of dollars.
The 14-02 included institutional visits to Cameroon ministries, UN institutions involved with disaster management or space-based technologies. A stakeholder workshop was organized bringing together more than 70 experts of the Cameroon disaster management, geospatial and academic community.
The mission team recommends the incorporation of the use of space-based information in policies targeting civil protection and integrate the use of space based information in disaster -risk management and emergency response efforts carried out by the Civil Protection agency.
As the research and academic community is a major source of expertise for risk and disaster management, the country could benefit from mobilizing it better, in particular in the area of capacity building at the national level. The Civil Protection agency would benefit from carrying out an awareness campaign targeting the national as well as the local levels on issues related to disaster-risk management, preparedness and emergency response.
The Civil Protection agency as well as other government agencies are recommended to offer trainings on the generation and use of space-based information in efforts related to disaster-risk management and emergency response. Government agencies, including the Civil Protection agency, should establish a Geospatial Database Infrastructure as a way to share data more effectively.
UN-SPIDER could facilitate, on a periodic basis and at the request of all stakeholders, data and information to the National Observatory of Risks ONR established in and whose main mission is to centralize all available information on risks.
