Technical Workshop: Increasing Resilience through Earth Observation for the Skadar area
IncREO - Increasing Resilience through Earth Observation is a collaborative project under the call FP7-SPACE-2012-1 in support of emergency response management and risk-preparedness.
IncREO, which has been devised in support of emergency response management and risk-preparedness, aims to provide actors responsible for disaster management, risk prevention, civil protection and also spatial planning with EO-based solutions, contributing particularly to an improved preparedness and mitigation planning for areas highly vulnerable to natural disasters.
The workshop will involve project partners and end-users in order to assess jointly develop an EO geo-information product for risk prevention and preparedness through EO imagery elaboration in the region of Skadar. The workshop is an important step to the development of maps to be technically specified and made available to the government of Albania, whose departments and ministries are asked to share their requirements and data with UNESCO and with the product developers partners, test the developed products and employ them in order to achieve higher societal benefits in the flood disaster risk prevention and reduction area.
