We seek and support projects and technologies that aim to try to predict natural disasters (earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, etc.), monitor natural anomalies, to identify patterns in their occurrence. The goal for this area is to find and promote the use of technologies that not only deal with consequences from natural disasters, but also proactively focus on early predictions and warnings, thus reducing the risks and damage to people's lives.
Industrial or man-made risks
We support projects and technologies in the fields of monitoring and reducing the human footprint on the environment, reducing harmful emissions, renewable clean energy development. As one of the most important areas to reduce the death rate from man-made factors, we see a need to increase the level of recycling, reducing the proportion of non-recyclable waste and avoiding incineration, as well as finding alternative ways to safely recycle waste.
The Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Republic of Armenia in cooperation with of the Asian Development Bank, the Disaster Risk Reduction National Platform, the LGG foundation to Reduce Natural and Environmental Risks, the United Nations Development Program and the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction, is pleased to organize a workshop dedicated to the day of “Remembrance and Resilience” of the Spitak earthquake. 7th December 2022, Yerevan
Our team has been monitoring the preparation of a major earthquake in the east of the island of Taiwan for two years.
