Our global objective is to integrate Geographic Information Systems, Space-based information, the Earth, and Social Sciences to drive a shift of the burden of natural hazards and environmental degradation from their perception as natural processes. Disasters are wreaked by the uncontrollable forces of nature and the simultaneous presence of natural events and human activities. If well understood at the grassroots and decision-making levels, and incorporated into the initial stages of planning and investment, it can result in disaster risk reduction, a better environment, and sustainable development.
