Modelling Exposure Through Earth Observation Routines (METEOR)

Background

The METEOR project is comprised of GEM, the British Geological Survey (BGS), ImageCat, National Society for Earthquake Technology (NSET), The Disaster Management Department (DMD - Prime Minister's Office) of Tanzania, the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) and Oxford Policy Management Limited (OPM). The main objective of the project is to develop and deliver more accurate levels of the exposure of populations and the built environment to natural hazards in developing countries. The first pilot countries are Nepal and Tanzania, because of their differing exposure and hazard types. The project also aims to reach all 48 Least Developed ODA (Official Development Assistance) countries and addresses Priority 1 of the Sendai Framework for DRR: Understanding disaster risk.
