4 4 Benefits & Challenges: Disaster Management Strong demand from the Geohazards Community to have easy and access to data during the whole cycle of the Disaster Risk Management (Prevention, Prediction & EW, Crisis, Post Crisis and recovery) Strong demand from the Geohazards Community to have easy and seamless access to data during the whole cycle of the Disaster Risk Management (Prevention, Prediction & EW, Crisis, Post Crisis and recovery)

5 5 Global Initiative: Global Alliance for Chronic Diseases Alliance (GACD) for a critical battle against: Chronic, Non-Communicable Diseases- Research on: Cardiovascular Diseases (mainly Heart Disease and Stroke) Several Cancers Chronic Respiratory conditions Type 2 Diabetes Alliance: Australia+Canada+China+India+UK+USA Health Research Agencies: collectively managing estimated 80% of worlds public health research funding

6 6 Benefits & Challenges: Human Capital (shared?) Number of scientists/engineers vs. population: Africa: less than 1 per 10,000 inhabitants Asia & Europe: 2-5 per 10,000 inhabitants

7 7 Benefits & Challenges: Progress through Partnerships- Individuals & Nations If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of the giants. Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1727) English mathematician and physicist In: Letter to Robert Hooke, 5 February 1676 Thank you for your attention
