Improved data to better understand exposure, vulnerabilities and hazards: SHEAR research outcome


The SHEAR programme (Science for Humanitarian Emergencies and Resilience) carried out innovative research, in some of the most hazard-prone parts of the world, to better understand and forecast disasters, and minimize the risk they pose to vulnerable communities. Data plays a key role in preparing for, and responding to, disaster risks. With improved quality, availability and accessibility of hazard-related data, disaster impacts can be better defined and anticipated. This brief explores key improvements in data delivered by SHEAR projects
