1 G.W ICT for risk management FP6 Strategic Objective ICT for Environment Information Society & Media DG European Commission, Brussels Guy Weets Deputy Head of Unit

2 G.W Evolving disaster reduction paradigm 1.Comprehensive emergency management Focus on response 2.Disaster-resistant communities –Focus on natural hazard prevention 3.Resilient communities –« Living with disasters » and focus on rapid recovery –Covers the whole risk management chain 4.Sustainable disaster mitigation –Focus on processes linking environment, development and disaster – Vulnerability of people, infrastructure, environment –Capacity building RISK = Hazard *Vulnerability

3 G.W Recovery Lessons learnt Scenario update Socio-economic and environmental impact assessment Spatial re-planning Immediate response Emergency telecommunication Command control coordination Situational awareness Dispatching of resources… Communication to the citizens The risk management cycle Awareness and Prevention Hazard prediction and modeling Risk assessment and mapping Systemic risks Regional/city Planning E-Learning.. Preparation Monitoring & early warning Scenarios development Emergency Planning maps Training Sustained response Interventions that restore Functionality of critical systems and meet social needs. Alert DSS Scenario identification all media alarm Secure &dependable telecom

4 G.W General objectives 1.To contribute to the deployment of an Info-structure for environmental monitoring and risk management in Europe 2.To promote the development of related cost-effective ICT services System integration & solution driven approach –Market & user needs driven Focus on generic solutions Re-usable software components Open source software Interoperability, scalability ->work on system architecture –Based on state-of-the-art risk/environment science –Specific technological developments when needed

5 G.W The strategic approach. 1.To cover the whole risk management cycle. Risk assessment, preparedness, early warning, alert, response, recovery, lessons learnt etc. 2.To cover all environmental hazards, including systemic risks / cascading risks 3.To focus on system architecture rather than specific applications To decrease the development and maintenance cost whilst improving reliability, scalability and interoperability

6 G.W The strategic approach (cont) 4.To support large scale pilot test with end- users as well as training activities 5.To foster pre-standardisation activities as an integral part of RTD 6.To promote open source software as a mean to improve the uptake of RTD results 7.To contribute to the relevant EU policies and actions: GEOSS, INSPIRE, GMES,

7 G.W Some ICT issues Situational awareness: how to obtain, sustain common operating picture in a distributed decision environment under conditions of uncertainty. Information overload: how to filter information and still get the right information to the right people at the right time, how to minimize degradation of decision process due to information overload. Real time decision support: how to provide robust, and applicable models, ensure data and system availability where and when needed. Supporting response management operations: how to coordinate and track activities and resources in multiple organizations and operations centers during extremely large and complex operations. response

8 G.W Some ICT Issues Communicating to community, victims, the media: how to ensure that warning systems warn, that crisis communications communicate Communication interoperability and security: how to provide technology and systems that are open enough to connect all necessary parties while controlling access Utilizing and controlling ad hoc communications: Cell phones, satellite phone, text messaging, internet Identifying and tracking people (victims and workers) and things. How to facilitate the process of identifying the survivors and the dead, notifying appropriate authorities, tracking victims, tracking and verifying identity of workers and things response

9 G.W Strategy implementation 1.Information infrastructure for risk management Hazard, vulnerability, risk maps Interoperability of geo-spatial data Open service architecture »Web services, metadata registries »Semantic web, ontologies Sensor networks 2.Improved emergency management Command control coordination Full situational awareness Emergency maps In a multi-lingual/cultural environment

10 G.W Strategy implementation( cont) 3.Public safety communications Early warning systems All hazard all media alarm systems Rapidly deployable broadband telecom Positioning systems 4.Regional and city planning Reduced vulnerability Evacuation Etc.

11 G.W Major IST Integrated projects 1a.Development of an open architecture (eINFRASTRUCTURE) for risk management services in Europe: Overcoming heterogeneity and fragmentation; Cross-system navigation and search; Workflow management, collaborative working, language issues, interface to satellite EO ground segment; Will deliver publicly available specifications and open source software; (ORCHESTRA & WIN) &

12 G.W Major IST Integrated projects 1b.Risk monitoring systems, sensor network architecture 2 new IP in negotiation: SANY, OSIRIS 2.Emergency management: –Command & control system to support response & rescue operations in large scale emergencies – Full situational awareness integrating positioning with GIS info and emergency telecom.OASIS project: 3.Public safety communication –2 new IP in negotiation: CHORIST, U-2010

13 G.W IST SSA Actions to support the convergence effort in the field of public safety communication. ( public safety communication stakeholder forum) Project NARTUS Sucessful call 6 proposals will be required to liaise with relevant major projects and participate to workshops on common issues

14 G.W I wish you a successful proposal
