Satellite EO Capabilities for
Each Phase of Disaster Risk Reduction
This section provides summary descriptions of how EO satellite data support each phase of DRR:
– Mitigation and Preparedness;
– Detecting and tracking hazards (both weather–related and non–weather–related);
– Long-term climate monitoring.
The pages describe the capabilities that the satellite data bring and the DRR functions that these capabilities support. The relevant disaster types are described and some important examples provided.
