Making Space for Risk Reduction


Through the unique perspective of Earth observation, NASA’s Disasters program area reveals the scope and severity of disaster risk. “Making space for risk reduction” means exploring natural hazards and climate change in combination with vulnerability, exposure, and coping capacity. This approach provides increased awareness that can help reduce risk, improve response, hasten recovery, and promote resilience from natural and technological disasters. Before, during, and after disasters strike, our tools and our agile network of global and local partners help communities improve response, hasten smarter recovery, and promote sustainable resilience.
