What we do
GEO Hazard Mapping Initiative is
focused on deploying volunteer youths who are skilled at using
Geographic Information Systems and satellite imagery analysis to create
susceptiblility and emergency mapping of actual or expected natural,
biological, and technological hazards being experienced in Nigeria and
other African countries as a result of Climate Change.
To promote a sustainable environment through the development,
generating applications, and dissemination of Geohazard maps
using advanced Geospatial Technology.
Our main objective is to identify locations in Nigeria and other African countries that are susceptible
to various geohazards. We continuously produce Hazard susceptibility and prediction maps at a local scale and they are being shared with Disaster and Emergency Management Institutions, Goverment Ministries, Community Leaders and Other Environmental response stakeholders, these maps are used for efficient disaster preparedness, risk management and early warning planning.
