24 February 2016, Kigali, Rwanda – Within the framework of the 42nd Greater Horn of Africa Climate Outlook Forum, UNOSAT and IGAD’s Climate Prediction and Application Centre (ICPAC) successfully hosted a one-day national level technical workshop on flood and drought management.
Nairobi, 27 January 2016 – With the aim to further improve accessibility to information on climate and hazard data, the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) Climate Prediction & Applications Centre (ICPAC) has published a live web-map to monitor climate and associated hazards in the Greater Horn of Africa region.
Vehicle tracking is becoming rapidly a priority requirement for all humanitarian organisations and NGOs with sizeable fleets deployed in the field. The UN system alone manages tens of thousands of vehicles worldwide, often in hostile or difficult environments adding security challenges to logistical and organisational problems.
UNOSAT applied research on integrated solutions based on satellite technology was extended to navigation and geopositioning back in 2008, with the creation of a PPP initiative known today as HumaNav.
UNOSAT rapid mapping was activated this March over Uganda in the aftermath of deadly landslides provoked by severe flooding in the region of Bududa.
According to OCHA as of 16 March 2010, 94 bodies have been retrieved while over 300 people are missing following the landslides.
