This is the report of the Working Group on Geospatial Information and Services for Disasters, for consideration by the Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management.
The report of the Working Group on Geospatial Information and Services for Disasters describes its formation, delineates its terms of reference and work plan and details the processes applied in developing a draft strategic framework on Geospatial Information and Services for Disasters. This includes the review of existing frameworks, laws, rules and regulations of Member States on the provision of geospatial information and services before, during and after disasters.
The framework draws from the principles included in the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-203012; the UN General Assembly resolution on international cooperation on humanitarian assistance in the field of natural disasters, from relief to development; the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development; and other relevant instruments.
The suggested Priorities for Action of the strategic framework are:
Priority 1: Goverance and Policies;
Priority 2: Awareness Raising and Capacity Building;
Priority 3: Data Management;
Priority 4: Common Infrastructure and Services; and
Priority 5: Resource Mobilization.
