We can help you with:

Preparedness & anticipatory action:

  • Supporting anticipatory action – applying advanced data analysis methods to predict and reduce the impacts of emergency events such as floods or droughts before they occur.

Emergency response:

  • Operational data models – analysing data and devising ways to assess things like flood extents or transport routes
  • Who, what, where, why and when? – known as 3, 4 or 5W mapping, this helps operations teams see what each other are doing
  • Gap analysis – determining whether aid requirements are being met and flagging any unmet needs.
