UN Environment/OCHA Joint Unit – FEAT Factsheet

Communication Material

This factsheet describes the Flash Environmental Assessment Tool (FEAT), a tool developed by the UN Environment/OCHA Joint Unit (JEU). 

The FEAT is a tool which identifies existing or potential acute impacts posed by chemical substances. It flags the spatial, human health and environmental impacts of chemical releases following disasters, allowing emergency responders to take quick action to alleviate human suffering.

The tool is entirely free and targets national, regional, local and industrial actors who are involved in emergency management. The UN Environment/OCHA Joint Unit also hosts a free training on how to use the tool, which you can consult here.
