Abstract

This report is the outcome of a study into the information needs of disaster managers in Pacific Island Countries (PICS) and the nature of the information infrastructure needed to ensure the delivery of that information. It addresses two key aspects. First, it provides a guide for National Disaster Management Officers (NDMO) and regional agencies such as the South Pacific Applied Geoscience Commission (SOPAC) which are engaged in disaster research, to follow in building their own national and regional disaster information collections. Second, it provides some observations on a range of technical and organisational issues, such as data formats, transfer standards and custodianship arrangements, that need to be considered in establishing and operating a modem information infrastructure.
