We have recently submitted the Report on Urban Flooding and Water and Food Security Indicators (Deliverable 1.1).
This report, produced as part of Work Package 1 (Requirements Analysis and Use Case Definition), plays a key role in laying the groundwork for further activities within the CENTAUR project. The overall objective was to define potential improvements and proposed developments for the Copernicus Emergency Management Service (CEMS) and Copernicus Security Service – Support to EU External and Security Actions (CSS-SESA) product portfolios. The document describes existing data sources and indicators to be integrated into the CENTAUR platform and identifies new indicators to be developed within the project’s lifetime.
This has been conducted through the following steps:
- Assessment of the CEMS and the CSS-SESA service model:
The report evaluates the current CEMS and CSS-SESA service model in relation to urban flood risks and water and food insecurity. This analysis serves as a basis for identifying areas for improvement and further development.
- User needs and requirements:
Through extensive user consultation activities, the report assesses user needs and defines requirements for Urban Flood Risks and Water and Food Insecurity.
- Identification of response tool gaps:
The report identifies gaps in existing response tools and proposes strategies to address them. This approach will enable the project to develop effective responses to complex emergencies and crises.
- Preliminary inventory of indicators:
A preliminary inventory of basic indicators will be provided, setting the stage for their completion during the development of the thematic products.
