InaSAFE produces realistic natural hazard impact scenarios for better planning, preparedness and response activities.
To effectively prepare for future floods, earthquakes or tsunami you must first understand the likely impacts that need to be managed. For example, to prepare contingency plans for a severe flood in Jakarta, emergency managers need to answer questions like:
what are the areas likely to be affected;
how many people will need to be evacuated and sheltered;
which schools will be closed;
which hospitals can still take patients; and
what roads will be closed?
How does it work?
InaSAFE provides a simple but rigorous way to combine data from scientists, local governments and communities to provide insights into the likely impacts of future disaster events.
