This contributing paper presents how Indigenous Peoples are co-creating data platforms and technological tools that weave together Indigenous and Western knowledge and scientific Earth observations (EO) for disaster risk reduction.
Cover and title of publication
This paper discusses potential of earth observation (EO) in providing simplistic and operational tools for the systemic risk analysis to complement Indigenous Knowledges covering nature-based solutions (NBS).
Cover and title of publication
This contributing paper takes a look at the use of radio occultation to infer temperature and improve modeling for wildfire risk. 
Cover and title of publication
The purpose of this contributing paper is to demonstrate scalable and replicable methods to advance and integrate the use of Earth observations to support risk-informed decision making, based on documented national and subnational needs and requirements.
GPS satellite in the Earth's orbit
A new method for detecting tsunamis using existing GPS satellites orbiting Earth could serve as an effective warning system for countries worldwide, according to a new study by an international team led by UCL researchers.
Space-based and remotely sensed technologies can help to simplify, justify or improve anticipatory action programmes – and may even provide opportunities for additional programmes based on triggers that have not yet been considered.

This document explains how MENAdrought supports Jordan, Lebanon and Morocco in anticipating, preparing for and mitigating drought impacts; including the development of a satellite- and model-based drought early warning system.
This SHEAR knowledge product explores examples of how Earth observations have been used within the disaster management and disaster risk reduction contexts alongside a discussion of the current uses, ethics, and the future of Earth observation data.
