Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS): Disasters

The disasters group of GEOSS integrates satellite data with other information to help disaster managers reduce vulnerability, improve early warning and support recovery measures.

The group has set up a coastal zone community of practice, established a global wildland fire early warning system and supports key organisations such as Sentinel Asia.

It publishes information about all its achievements as well as targets and planned activities.
