  • The CAA informed the AAIB that when considering applications for air displays, and when attending air displays to conduct audits, it did not inspect or request copies of hazard logs or risk assessments. (bognor.co.uk)
  • The quantitative earthquake disaster risk maps in the study area were developed by integrating the values of the at-risk elements for the earthquake factor, population, and landslide hazard. (mdpi.com)
  • preparedness
  • The stocktaking will cover institutions at the national, state, and local levels with the mandate to coordinate and manage aspects related to disaster mitigation, preparedness, and response. (adpc.net)
  • A contingency plan is an anticipatory emergency plan to be followed in an expected or eventual disaster, based on Risk Security Assessment, availability of human and material resources, community preparedness, local and international response capability, etc. (blogspot.com)
  • strengthen
  • The assessment and resulting report and recommendations will identify opportunities to develop or update relevant policies and plans, strengthen human capacity, enhance institutional coordination and ensure that cross-cutting issues like gender and social inclusion are mainstreamed and supported. (spc.int)
  • landslides
  • In this paper, earthquake scenarios in the Guyuan Region of China are used as an example to study earthquake disaster risk assessment and a method of assessment is proposed that uses the peak ground acceleration (PGA), landslides triggered by the earthquake, and the effects on the population. (mdpi.com)
  • The combination of steep Himalayan slopes made up of foliated fractured rocks, glacial debris, moraine blocked lakes that could breach and overflow and narrow valleys where precipitation and stream waters get focused and funneled into raging torrents makes for an elevated risk of landslides, debris flows and floods during heavy rains.

  • collaboration
  • The assessments were carried out in collaboration with Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (WWT) and Birdlife International, using a series of tools developed earlier in 2017. (iucn.org)
  • The UK Science and Innovation Network , in collaboration with the UK Collaborative on Development Sciences (UKCDS), the Research Councils UK Risk Research Champion and La Salle University , is organising an international and interdisciplinary workshop to explore this issue. (ukcds.org.uk)
  • The UK Science and Innovation Network, in collaboration with the UK Collaborative on Development Sciences (UKCDS), the Research Councils UK Risk. (ukcds.org.uk)
  • In this research, the characteristics of a suitable interactive map for risk assessment was defined in collaboration with the senior practitioners within a multi-agency team in the UK. (bl.uk)
  • These questionnaires were designed to evaluate the perceived effectiveness and impact of the interactive map on strengthening collaboration among the multi-agency teams during risk assessment. (bl.uk)
  • The overall result suggests that the professionals view the interactive map as a good platform to support collaboration multi-agency teams in risk assessment activity. (bl.uk)
  • quantitative
  • Secondly, the comprehensive evaluation index system is proposed from the aspects of power system structure, fault state and economic loss, and the quantitative assessment of system risk is carried out by an entropy weight model. (mdpi.com)
  • undertake
  • However, there are occasions where response time, as well as access to financial resources and/or technical capacity are constrained, limiting the ability to undertake such robust and rigorous assessments. (ukcds.org.uk)
  • Monitoring
  • Despite technological advances in the earth observation and the existance of ground-based systems for disaster prediction and monitoring, several countries face challenges to assess and reduce disaster risks. (un-spider.org)
  • These challenges can be addressed by setting up a mechanism for identifying, assessing, monitoring and responding to disaster risks. (un-spider.org)
  • TerraMA2 (old SISMADEN) is a software product, a computational system, based on a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), which provides the technological infrastructure required to develop operational systems for environmental risks monitoring and alert. (drrcloud.eu)

  • June 2014, Geneva, Switzerland - Although UNOSAT is mainly known in UN circles for its long standing support to emergency response operations in humanitarian crises, its experts are adamant that the use of satellite derived geospatial information can be a game-changer in assessing vulnerability and estimating risk. (unitar.org)
  • suitable
  • In response, it recommended the CAA introduce a process to ensure that the organisers have conducted 'suitable and sufficient risk assessments' before receiving permission to hold a display. (bognor.co.uk)
  • focus
  • In GAR13, the focus shifted once again, this time from public policies and investment to the largely unexplored nexus between private investment and disaster risk. (preventionweb.net)
  • Collaborative
  • Dealing with disasters demand the involvement of a range of agencies collaborating and making collaborative decision. (bl.uk)
  • Research
  • This research uses the six-step risk assessment process used in Australia and New Zealand which is widely recognized as being good practice. (bl.uk)
  • Finally, the risk assessment of two UHV planning schemes are carried out and compared, which proves the effectiveness of the research work. (mdpi.com)
