To promote an innovative approach to reduce disaster risks, GFDRR has launched the GFDRR Laboratories team, whose mission is to foster innovation in DRM through partnerships and technology. The GFDRR Labs will focus on providing support with risk models, risk databases, understanding risk networks, and engaging the grassroots community. The GFDRR Lab will support the PDNA process using remote sensing initiatives such as the Global Earth Observation Catastrophe Assessment Network (GEO-CAN).
