The 930 Initiative
The 930 project offers hope for a sustainable and innovative project to address the risks relating to natural catastrophes. In a country heavily exposed and vulnerable to natural catastrophes and climate change, the 930 project shifts the paradigms in Disaster Risk Management through an efficient response to natural catastrophes covering the complete cycle (curative and preventive actions).
The objective is to develop an early warning system saving as many human lives as possible. This includes the people most vulnerable to these events because of their work, their living standards, their locations, or their financial conditions.
This early warning system involves new methodologies, new approaches and technologies and is made up of:
- An operating and interconnected system based on a real time database platform (thanks to geo-intelligence solutions satellites, drones, telecommunications) and human factor approach (sociological and psychological approach) enabling accurate data flows in two ways (ascending and descending flows) available for all individuals regardless of their background.
- A community-based approach for an agile and efficient dissemination of alerts, and deployment of rescue resources through a dedicated task force made up of individuals able to reach the most vulnerable (e.g. by involving Scouts associations etc)
- A more resilient ecosystem including behavioural changes, gathering and serving all the community's interests,and providing re-insurance (organisations, institutions, businesses, associations, workers).
- A human and geographic cartography enabling sustainable societal changes for all, empowering individual diversity (regardless of social positions, gender or religious beliefs) and improving governance frameworks (investments decisions from private and public sectors, humanitarian actions, guiding principles).
The pilot phase will kick off in 6 cities, and aims at scaling at a regional and national scale.
We wish to engage with external partners such as:
- Disaster risk-management, with University, insurance companies, expert within risk model-based approach
- Civil organisations, institutions, corporates
- National development agencies
- World bank organisation, United Nations and other international NGOs.
