Sustainable Development of Natural Resources in Afghanistan

MapX was deployed to establish the Afghanistan Environmental Data Center. Follow the Aynak Copper Mine case study to see the challenges being faced for environmental managers.

Flood model for Kerala, India, including climate change projections

In order to reinforce the adaptive capacities of the Kerala State to floods, a downscaled flood model was developed in the Kerala region. Climate change projections based on CORDEX were introduced according to the RCP8.5 scenario. Detailed maps of the water heights according to different return periods (from 10 to 500 years) were produced.

Global Risk Data Platform

Multiple agencies effort to share spatial data information on global risk from natural hazards, such as fires, volcanoes, tsunamis, floods, landslides, earthquakes, and tropical cyclones.
Haiti uses spatial data

Haiti Environment and Energy Mapping

MapX is establishing a spatial database infrastructure to support UNEP's country programme and to pilot test mapping of renewable energy infrastructure.

DR Congo: Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative Support

As the extractives sector embraces increasing transparency, stakeholders face a series of new challenges. These relate to avoiding data fragmentation, duplicating and dispersing available data, and providing access to actionable information for evidence-based decision making.

Somalia: Drought Impact Needs Assessment (DINA)

The Drought Impact Needs Assesment (DINA) in Somalia was initiated by the federal government to create recovery strategies in response to climatic variability. Explore the spatial data catalogue.
NEAT in practice

The Nexus Environmental Assessment Tool (NEAT+)

The Nexus Environmental Assessment Tool (NEAT+) is a project-level environmental screening tool for humanitarian actors working in situations of displacement. Explore the spatial data catalogue.
Probo Koala Field Assessment

Probo Koala Environmental Audit

In August 2006, the ship Probo Koala dumped 528 cubic metres of toxic waste around the port of Abdijan, Côte d'Ivoire. MapX supported spatial data management for the independent environmental audit.

Earth Observation Data Cube on Demand for Monitoring Land Degradation by Mining Activities

H2020 GEOEssential project is addressing the need for trusted sources of data and information to monitor the progress made on environmental conditions towards policy targets. Under this project, MapX has been connected with data cube technology to develop different pilots for monitoring land degradation by mineral resources extraction.

Sahel fragility and environment assessment

The overall objective of the project is to deliver a story map and data catalogue in MapX, that UNEP can use to support the World Bank in their fragility assessment of the Sahel.
