Briefing Note in Russian on "ИКТ для управления рисками стихийных бедствий" (ICT for Disaster Risk Management)

Серия информационных записок направлена ​​на предоставление краткой информации по ключевым вопросам ИКТР для политиков и облегчение их понимания потенциала ИКТ при формулировании политики и программ национального развития. В самой последней информационной записке основное внимание уделяется соображениям политики, взятым из " ИКТ для управления рисками стихийных бедствий »модуль Академии.

Academy Module in Russian on "ИКТ для управления рисками стихийных бедствий"

Информационно Коммуникационные Технологии (ИКТ) обладают огромным потенциалом в управлении риска бедствии благодаря скорому и стабильному потоку информации. Развитие ИКТ дало возможность использовать полученные данные и информации на всех ключевых фазах цикла УРСБ. Этот модуль создан для политиков и государственных служащих на национальном и местном уровнях управления, которые отвечают за деятельность по УРСБ или участвуют в ней.

Academy Module on "ICT for Disaster Risk Management"

Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) have tremendous potential in disaster risk reduction due to their ability to facilitate the rapid flow of information instantly and continuously, in real-time. The use of ICTs in all phases of the disaster risk management cycle presents substantial opportunities to reduce disaster risks, enhance resilience, and facilitate inclusive preparedness and response.

Webinar on Digital Technologies for Disaster Risk Management (Virtual Launch of APCICT Academy Module on ICT for Disaster Risk Management)

APCICT organized a webinar on “Digital Technologies for Disaster Risk Management” (Virtual Launch of APCICT Academy Module on ICT for Disaster Risk Management) on Thursday, 27 August 2020, 1:30 PM (Bangkok time), 3:30 PM (Korea time).

The virtual launch of the APCICT Academy module on “ICT for Disaster Risk Management” introduced the newly developed contents by Dr. Cees Van Westen and Dr. Manzul Kumar Hazarika. It also provided an overview of how ICTs can be used for disaster risk management.

Performance Evaluation of Multi-Hop Communication Based on a Mobile Multi-Robot System in a Subterranean Laneway

For disaster exploration and surveillance application, this paper aims to present a novel application of a multi-robot agent based on WSN and to evaluate multi-hop communications supported by robotics used in subterranean tunnel. The paper proposes a Primary-Scout Multi-Robot System (PSMRS) and reports on the implementation of a chain topology in a subterranean environment using a trimmed ZigBee2006 protocol stack to build the multi-hop communication network.

Disaster Events Detection using Twitter Data

In this paper, interest is in the rapid detection of disaster events such as tsunami, tornadoes, forest fires, and earthquakes. The detection system of disaster events is described and the way to detect a target event from Twitter data is also shown in this paper. The research examines three disasters during the same time period and compares Twitter activity and Internet news on Google. A significant result from this research is that emergency detection could begin using the microblogging service.

Disaster Management, Developing Country Communities & Climate Change: The Role of ICTs

Climate change presents two types of disaster threat in developing countries. One is the potentially devastating impact on vulnerable communities of more frequent and more intense extreme weather events. This contributes to the second threat, the compounding of what are already complex development problems leading to a potential downward development spiral for the world’s poor. Effective disaster response demands rapid access to reliable and accurate data and the capacity to assess, analyse and integrate information from varied sources. ICTs can contribute to improve this.
