Developing solutions for
Climate and Disaster Resilience

The newly launched UK Space Agency Solutions Catalogue signals 3-2-1-lift-off for Ambiental solutions. In our article here we summarise our technologies which have been showcased and link to the publication.

The UK Space Agency (UKSA), which leads the UK civil space programme has unveiled their new International Partnership Programme: Space Solutions for Development catalogue. The report is produced under the International Partnership Programme (IPP), a five-year, £152 million programme run by the UKSA.

IPP uses the UK space sector’s research and innovation strengths to deliver a sustainable, economic and societal benefit to undeveloped nations and developing economies. The project’s themes are diverse, tackling such subject matters as enhancing disaster response, increasing resilience to climate change, illegal fishing and reducing deforestation.

Ambiental played a key role in the largest IPP project to date where we deployed our FloodWatch technology in Malaysia through the Earth & Seas Observation System (EASOS) platform. We have also worked with UKSA to deliver our Smart City Dashboard for London under the Spaces for Smarter Government Program (SSGP). Both projects are featured in the publication which is downloadable here.

Flood Risk Management Systems and Data

Ambiental’s flood risk management systems and data fall within the heading of climate and disaster resilience. Effective flood risk management requires clear and current information to make informed decisions. Ambiental produces high precision flood data in the form of hazard maps and flood risk analysis quantifications. Using a systems approach enables customers in government, disaster response, insurance and the private sector to better prepare for and respond to flood emergencies.
