SmartEarth is currently developing a new communications tool, for people facing the threat of natural disasters in developing countries.
Since 2005 over 700,000 people have died in natural disasters and double that have been injured. The associated economic cost is in hundreds of billions of US dollars.
SmartEarth’s technological innovation will assist developing countries by supporting early warning systems for natural disasters. This new communications tool is being developed with the support of funding from the Irish Government (Enterprise Ireland).
