Creating a Multi-agency Collaboration Platform for Building Resilient Communities in Sri Lanka, Malaysia and Pakistan.
MOBILISE project aims to develop a Collaborative Multi-agency Platform that can be used for building resilient communities in disaster prone areas in three low-/middle-income countries (LMICs), namely Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Malaysia which are frequently affected by multiple natural disasterssuch as floods, landslides, cyclones, droughts, and earthquakes. This research investigates a broader set of disaster risk and response governance to assess their vulnerabilities and resilience capabilities to strengthen local and national resilience frameworks.
Bringing information from the Earth Observation (EO) and social platforms, the MOBILISE project aims to create a novel 3D virtual collaborative environment that helps multiple agencies involved in risk reduction and response to capture accurate picture of a disaster incident to plan forfuture disaster incidents as well as for effective disaster responses in Sri Lanka, Malaysia and Pakistan.
