Launch of the Disaster Risk Reduction Information and Knowledge Management System for the Southern East Africa and Indian Ocean Region

Z_GIS established the online information platform together with COOPI to support knowledge exchange between different actors in Mozambique, Malawi and Madagascar. The web based tool comprises an e-library and a Geoportal, where different datasets on health and disaster risk reduction activities can be accessed. Next to COOPI, FAO and UN-HABITAT contributed to this project.

It has been funded through the Disaster Preparedness Program of the European Commission’s Humanitarian Office (DIPECHO) and was jointly implemented with the NGO COOPI.
