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.

System complete and qualified.
Technology has been proven to work in its final form and under expected conditions. In almost all cases, this TRL represents the end of true system development. Examples include developmental test and evaluation (DT&E) of the system in its intended weapon system to determine if it meets design specifications.
Testing plan completed
The testing plan and the BRIGAID’s Testing Innovation Framework (TIF) has been rightly applied and finished. The TRL of the innovation has been effectively reached.
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.
