Remote Environmental Data Analysis
The Remote Environmental Data Analysis is a collaborative process which allows environmental actors to be involved in humanitarian analysis, via participation in a working group set up under the Joint Initiative and managed by the UN Environment / OCHA Joint Unit.
There was a need to improve the quality of humanitarian analysis through the inclusion of environmental data at the earliest stages of response analysis. The goal is to strengthen the involvement of environmental actors in remote analysis and quickly identify and analyse top environmental issues relevant to the crisis context and the response.
The proposed activities of the group’s activities include:
- Identify entry points for feeding environmental data into humanitarian analysis processes and tools
- Establish a process whereby environmental actors can be involved in humanitarian analysis
- Pilot the integration of environmental data in at least one sudden-onset and one protracted crisis and refine and improve the process based on these pilots.
- For more information or to join the working group, consult the terms of reference.
