Working towards an Improved Monitoring Infrastructure to support Disaster Management, Humanitarian Relief and Civil Security

Riedlinger, Torsten and Voigt, Stefan and Kemper, Thomas and Mehl, Harald (2005) Working towards an Improved Monitoring Infrastructure to support Disaster Management, Humanitarian Relief and Civil Security. 31st International Symposium on Remote Sensing of Environment (ISRSE), 18.-24. Juni 2005, Saint Petersburg, Russia. (Unpublished)



Within this paper experiences and results from the work in the context of the European Initiative on Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES) as they were gathered within the German Remote Sensing Data Center (DFD) are reported. It is described how data flows, analysis methods and information networks can be improved to allow better and faster access to remote sensing data and information in order to support the management of crisis situations. This refers to all phases of a crisis or disaster situation, including preparedness, response and recovery. Above the infrastructure and information flow elements, example cases of different crisis situations in the context of natural disasters, humanitarian relief activities and civil security are discussed. This builds on the experiences gained during the very active participation in the network of Excellence on Global Monitoring for Stability and Security (GMOSS), the GMES Service Element RESPOND, focussing on Humanitarian Relief Support and supporting the International Charter on Space and Major Disasters as well as while linking closely to national, European and international entities related to civil human security. It is suggested to further improve the network of national and regional centres of excellence in this context in order to improve local, regional and global monitoring capacities. Only when optimum interoperability and information flow can be achieved among systems and data providers on one hand side and the decision makers on the other, efficient monitoring and analysis capacities can be established successfully.
