LandAware network WG07 Operational LEWS

New webinar by NASA and Pacific Disaster Center on Landslide Hazard Awareness

The webinar Landslide Hazard Awareness – NASA and Pacific Disaster Center cooperation to support decision-making” is scheduled for April 11, 2024 in the following time slots:

1:00 p.m-2:30 p.m. (EST)
11:00 a.m. 12:30 p.m. (Centro América)
7:00 p.m.-8:30 p.m. (CEST)

Key objectives:
Present Research Findings and showcase the partnership between NASA and the Pacific Disaster Center (PDC) in leveraging advanced technologies and data to improve landslide hazard assessment and decision-making processes. Introduce participants to the various tools, platforms, and resources developed through the collaboration between NASA and the PDC, such as landslide risk maps, and decision support tools.

Expected outcomes:
At the end of the webinar, it is expected that participants will have gained a better understanding of the actions and strategies implemented by the organizations involved in the region and that concrete opportunities for future collaboration will have been identified. In addition, it seeks to foster a renewed commitment to risk reduction and resilience in Central America.

Expected audience:
The webinar is open to all LandAware associates in particular those from the LatinAmerica region or working with landslide early warning systems in the region. The webinar is aimed in particular at the network on landslides in Central America made up of experts from official institutions in Central American countries, such as INSIVUMEH of Guatemala, INETER of Nicaragua, SGR of Costa Rica, SINAPROC of Panama, COPECO of Honduras, and MARN of El Salvador.

Next steps – After the webinar:
A monitoring process will be carried out that will include preparing a report with the conclusions and recommendations that emerged during the event. In addition, the possibilities of establishing working groups or joint projects will be explored to advance risk reduction in the region.
