Recommended Practices

Flood Mapping

When using Space technologies for disaster risk management and emergency response, it is not only important to have access to the right data and software, it is also crucial to be aware of practices that have proven effective in a specific context.

UN-SPIDER's partners and Regional Support Offices are therefore enhancing several recommended practices that provide practical insight and hands-on instructions on how to use satellite information for various hazards, in various phases of the disaster management cycle.

If you have questions or wish to share your own experience in applying these practices, please use the feedback button below.
