Damage Assessment for Post Conflict Situations

Directly after a conflict, rapid information about damages to infrastructure and affected areas is required for immediate relief and general situation assessment. This analysis is expected rapidly, and therefore a higher margin of error is tolerated. A more detailed analysis with much higher accuracy is required for needs assessment and recovery planning.

The damage to buildings and infrastructure is only one example; the categories to be monitored need to be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

Damaged infrastructure (e.g. houses, bridges) hinders the normal life of the population for a long period, even after the conflict. A qualified damage assessment, which can be achieved with remote sensing technologies, using also information from local authorities, will lead to better knowledge about the actual state within the affected region.

 

Core products

 

Damage assessment map and report indicating the location and the total amount of damages

 

 

Damage assessment map and report

The damage assessment map should allow the user to assess the damage caused by a conflict, both in terms of location of damages and the total number of damaged features. Damage assessment maps are core information for the overall assessment of the severity of a conflict and its consequences.

The product consists of two components:

  • A map indicating the location and the total amount of damages
  • A report describing briefly how to interpret the map and summarising the major results
