Expanded EM-DAT disaster database to the European level (eEM-DAT)

CRED will adapt the EMDAT global database for the EU level, increasing the resolution to district (admin 3) and state (admin 2), by collecting more detailed data. This tool will be called eEM-DAT (European EM-DAT), and will be tested in 3 or 4 pilot countries.

Technology demonstrated in relevant environment.
Representative model or prototype system, which is well beyond that of TRL 5, is tested in a relevant environment. Represents a major step up in a technology’s demonstrated readiness. Examples include testing a prototype in a high-fidelity laboratory environment or in a simulated operational environment.
The tool is available and is used at global level for several years. Its operational readiness is tested and IT parameters at the global level are functional.

How does it work?

A tool that used a standardised and structured method to collect, validate and analyse climate-related disaster impact data. This leads to an evidence base for the development of disaster risk reduction policy. The tool is being pilot-tested in the appropriate ministries or institutes of EU countries, in order to assess the feasibility for national authorities to use it.
