Data & Tools


For evidence-based decision-making

With the increasing impact and complexity of natural and human-induced disasters, identifying, assessing and understanding disaster risks is critical.

There is also a clear necessity for a common space where continuous testing, training, benchmarking, validation and promotion of more and more focused innovation in all phases of the disaster risk management cycle will take place. Industry and the scientific community play an essential role in developing innovative methods, tools and technological solutions for the mitigation of disasters (adaptation and prevention) and their impacts (preparedness and response).

The Knowledge Network aims at putting high-quality data and analytical tools at the disposal of the UCPM Member and Participating States and the community to facilitate evidence-based decision-making and operations. They are outcomes of the work conducted by the European Commission's Disaster Risk Management Knowledge Centre.
