Crisis situations often impact local infrastructure including private homes and those used for commercial and public services. One of the most complicated and important components of the recovery process is the rapid and effective restoration of these structures.
UNDP has developed a Household and Building Damage Assessment (HBDA) Toolkit to support authorities in crisis-affected countries around the world, to assess residential and non-residential infrastructure and collect timely data to inform decisions. The HBDA will also inform prioritization for risk-informed rehabilitation and rebuilding.
UNOSAT hosted a live session on Geospatial Technologies for Damage Assessment for HBDA online training participants.
To inform participants about applications of geospatial technologies to conduct damage assessments.
UNOSAT hosted an online live session for HBDA participants.
Information collected during the HBDA is visualized by Microsoft Power BI, an intelligence platform used for the analysis and visualization of data.
Further analysis of all these data can assist governments in prioritizing faster recovery, monitoring, policy-making, and disaster preparedness.
This was an information session where UNOSAT shared potential uses of geospatial technologies and techniques for damage assessments.
