Each year, disasters arising from storms, floods, volcanoes, and earthquakes cause thousands of deaths and tremendous damage to property around the world, displacing tens of thousands of people from their homes and destroying their livelihoods. In the last one and a half years, the world has experienced a pandemic of dimensions not experienced in recent decennia that halted life, trade, and production globally. We invite you to share your theoretical research, review studies, and experiments in this Special Issue.
The Special Issue aims to:
●Show the importance of international geoscience bodies, governmental and non-governmental organizations, to identify, support, and advance initiatives to implement the Sendai Framework through interdisciplinary action.
● Collect good practices on coordinating and supporting of the implementation initiatives for disaster risk management in accordance with the principles and goals of the Sendai Framework.
● Demonstrate by examples the importance of advising on the rationale and role that science should play in disaster risk management and work to strengthen that rationale and role.
● Illustrate the use and applicability of geospatial technologies in support of the variety of initiatives on Disaster Risk Reduction.
●Geospatial data policy and practices and their harmonization under Sendai framework.
●Formal education and curricula development to emphasize on sustainable development as prescribed by Sendai Framework.
●Tools for dissemination of objective information about the current situation of disasters and plans for solution to avoid panic and wrong decision on various levels of state managements.
●Legal issues around interoperability, rights management, and privacy.
●Value and sustainability of developing SDI, Digital Twins, and Smart Cities to support DRR.
●Needs and gaps in data skills to interpret, process, analyse and estimate simulations and predictions with geospatial data to support decision-making process.
●Availability, findability, accessibility, interoperability, and reusability of geospatial data in for the purpose of DRR.
●The challenges in combining, integrating and analysis of geospatial data.
●Best practices of geospatial data use for DRR.
●Best practices of cross collaboration between international and national organizations for DRR
