head of the World Bank Representative Office in the Kyrgyz Republic

ВБ 07 02 14

On February 07, 2014 CAIAG was visited by Alexander Kremer - the head of the World Bank Representative Office in the Kyrgyz Republic. CAIAG’s co-director Mr. Moldobekov presented an overview of scientific activities of the institute. Mr. Kremer took an interest in the development strategy of CAIAG. In the course of discussion it was pointed out that in spite of existing established cooperation it is to be strengthened. Main areas of cooperation in scientific activities were discussed. Mr. Moldobekov gave a talk about implemented and current projects and main areas of CAIAG’s activities, what was of interest for Mr. Kremer. During the visit of the head of the World Bank Representative Office in the Kyrgyz Republic, the parties defined a range of areas of further cooperation and steps of its implementation.

Press - conference "Application of remote sensing and ground observation methods to assess the risk and vulnerability of populated areas in Central Asian countries"

прессJanuary 31, 2014 at the information center "Kabar" held the press - conference on the theme in the framework of the project SENSUM

"Application of remote sensing and ground observation methods to assess the risk and vulnerability of populated areas in Central Asian countries"

SENSUM is an international project financed by European Commission within the 7th Framework Program, and focuses on providing innovative tools and methodologies for efficient and continuous monitoring of the built environment's vulnerability to earthquakes and landslides. 
The SENSUM consortium is composed of five prominent European scientific institutions, two partners institutions from Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, including the Asian Centre for GeoSciences (CAIAG).
A pool of international stakeholders has been established to ensure that the main outcomes of the project will positively impact upon the operational capabilities of Central Asian civil protection authorities for Disaster Risk Reduction applications.

The main goal of SENSUM project is two-fold:  compiling a comprehensive summary of current and future remote sensing data for vulnerability assessment, and providing a set of free-of-cost, efficient tools and methodologies for geographical data collection and integration.

Significant efforts have been spent to ensure that the developed methodologies and tools are consistent with the needs of end-user and other stakeholders, including the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Kyrgyzstan.

The SENSUM project is coordinated by the German Research Centre for Geosciences in Potsdam.

Symposium on earthquake and landslide risk in Central Asia and Caucasus

290114Symposium on earthquake and landslide risk in Central Asia and Caucasus: exploiting remote sensing and geo-spatial information management.

 From 29 to 30 of January, 2014 in Bishkek, CAIAG and GFZ together with UNDP under the project SENSUM conducted Symposium on earthquake and landslide risk in Central Asia and Caucasus: exploiting remote sensing and geo-spatial information management.

Landslides triggered by earthquakes are one of the classic examples of a multi-hazard and risk phenomena. In fact, they represent a very prominent case where the triggered events (landslides) are on occasion more devastating than the initial act (earthquakes). Such events have a severe impact upon the communities of Central Asia and the Caucasus, which include their detrimental effect on the development of infrastructure, namely reservoirs, roads, railways, and other lifelines.

There are intensive scientific research activities being undertaken to mitigate against the impact of such hazards as landslides triggered by earthquakes and the resulting risks. Included with such efforts are the latest advances in remotely-sensed data and the widespread use of geographical information systems (GIS), which are now able to provide effective tools to both practitioners and decision-makers.

In order to discuss these issues and to present the latest developments in earthquake and landslide vulnerability and risk assessment, to discuss advances and perspectives of remote sensing and geo-spatial information management, and associated case studies, research scientists and engineers, infrastructure operators (private and public), disaster response and mitigation managers, and decision and policy makers from around the Central Asian and Caucasus regions have been invited to this meeting.

Meeting under the project SENSUM

Framework of an integrated space-based and in-situ sensing for dynamic vulnerability and recover monitoring

On 27-28 January the meeting under the project SENSUM - Framework of an integrated space-based and in-situ sensing for dynamic vulnerability and recover monitoring - was conducted in CAIAG. All international project partners presented the results obtained on application of remote sensing methodologies and tools and of automatic observation systems and data processing to mitigate natural disasters (landslides, earthquakes) under the project during the first day of the meeting. The second day was devoted to discussion of current problems and plans for the year 2014.
