The Value of Geo-Information for Disaster and Risk Management (VALID)

On 3 September 2013, UNOOSA/UN-SPIDER presented a new report which shows the economic, humanitarian and organizational benefits of applying geoinformation to disaster management.

The report “The Value of Geo-Information for Disaster and Risk Management (VALID): Benefit Analysis and Stakeholder Assessment” is a joint publication of UNOOSA/UN-SPIDER and the Joint Board of Geoinformation Societies (JBGIS), including the International Cartographic Association (ICA). The publication aims to raise awareness and to help set priorities in research and development.

The VALID report is a follow-up publication to the Joint Board of Geospatial Information Societies (JBGIS) and UNOOSA/UN-SPIDER published ‘Geoinformation for Disaster and Risk Management – Examples and Best Practices’, a compilation of case studies that provides information on what can be done with geoinformation in support of disaster and risk management – methods, systems, applications, experiences. It analyses cases and offers an expert stakeholder assessment.

The publication (10 MB) can be downloaded from here: http://www.un-spider.org/sites/default/files/VALIDPublication.pdf
