UNOSAT produce mapping for Horn of Africa crisis
UNITAR’s Operational Satellite Applications Programme – UNOSAT – has produced mapping to support the humanitarian crisis in the Horn of Africa.
This rapid assessment of the Ethiopian border town of Dolo was done at the request of UNHCR in support of emergency humanitarian planning in the area following the recent influx of Somali refugees. Satellite imagery acquired on 17 July 2011 over the town was assessed for a number of thematic issues covering the possible presence of refugee/IDP settlements in the area, transportation, hydrology, rainfall and cultivation. This is a preliminary assessment and has not yet been validated in the field.
