Conception et Hébergement de Sites Web/Bases de Données/Serveurs Cartographiques

Afin de promouvoir l'accès du public à l'information environnementale, le GRID-Europe propose des services de conception de sites Web et de consultation créatifs et à la pointe. Il fournit aussi les dernières innovations en matière de publication Internet. Elles comprennent des solutions/systèmes de cartographie sur Internet, " Internet Mapping Systems " (IMS), permettant la distribution et l'échange de données SIG compatibles Internet ainsi que l'échange de données avec d'autres bases de données en ligne. Le GRID-Europe met aussi en place pour des institutions externes toute une variété de différents types d'arrangements pour abriter leurs sites Web, y compris des services de Webmaster qui maintiennent le site à flot et règlent tous les problèmes que pourrait rencontrer le portail.

GRIP website (2009)
UNEP/DEWA/GRID-Geneva is partner in Global Risk Identification Program (GRIP). The goal of GRIP is to reduce natural hazard-related losses in high risk areas and promote sustainable development. Its objectives are an improved evidence base for disaster risk management and the increased adoption of disaster risk management as an alternative to over-reliance on emergency management. In this way, GRIP aims to assist development decision making at all levels by facilitating the appropriate incorporation of disaster risk considerations. In this context, UNEP/DEWA/GRID-Geneva is developping and managing the portal website.

ISDR Database Access Application (2006)
One of the main mandates of the UN International Strategy for Disaster Reduction secretariat (UN/ISDR) is to act as an information clearinghouse for disaster reduction. As part of the overall development of the information clearinghouse for disaster risk reduction, one major component is the ISDR database on individual contacts, organisations and information, that has been developed over the past months with support from UNEP/GRIDEurope. This information has been made available on the Internet and is accessible

Environment and Security Initiative: Transforming Risks into Co-operation - Central Asia - Ferghana Triangle (2005)
The “Env&Sec” initiative was first undertaken during the second half of 2002. The purpose of this project, was to identify linkages between major environmental concerns or issues within European subregions and countries, and existing or potential security problems that impact on people and states. Because the “Env&Sec” project was well-received by many governments and other potential funding bodies, it was extended the work to other Central and Eastern European sub-regions and Central Asia.

Environmental Management Group (EMG) (2003)
GRID-Geneva has created the Environmental Management Group website in December 2003. The homepage represents a roundtable view from the air, expressing in the design that the EMG is working on environmental issues, while at the same time, stressing its information and communication aspects.

Disaster Risk Index Analysis Tool (2003)
Data visualization of the disaster risk index has been designed by GRID-Geneva. The pioneering Disaster Risk Index (DRI) Analysis Tool measures the relative vulnerability of countries to three key natural hazards — earthquake, tropical cyclone and flood — and identifies development factors that contribute to risk, and shows in quantitative terms, just how the effects of disasters can be either reduced or exacerbated by policy choices. Our hope is that the toolx will both help generate renewed interest in this critical development issue and help bring together stakeholders around more careful and coherent planning to mitigate the impact of future disasters.

Swiss Biosafety Clearing-House website (2003)
Hosted by GRID-Geneva. This website provides access to the Swiss Biosafety Clearing-House (CH-BCH). The CH-BCH was established by Article 20 of the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety, as part of the Clearing-House Mechanism of the Convention on Biological Diversity, in order to facilitate the exchange of scientific, technical, environmental and legal information on living modified organisms; and to assist Parties to implement the Protocol.

GEO-3 Data Compendium (2002)
This is the on-line version of the GEO-3 Data Compendium. It provides easy access to the national, sub-regional, regional and global statistical data sets used for UNEP's third Global Environment Outlook (GEO-3) report. These consistent data sets are derived from primary Data Sources around the world. They underpin much of the state of environment assessment undertaken for the report, and have been used as the basis for many of the graphics as well.

GBA2000-IMS (2002)
The GBA2000-IMS application informs users of the status of the project. In addition, the user can overlay burnt area maps with other sources of information such as country borders, national park boundaries and a land cover map. The users can zoom in and out, change the background, the month of observation in 2000, as well as download the data and access statitistics. Example from the GBA2000-IMS application, showing burnt areas over African Central Republic, Rep. Dem. of Congo and south of Sudan using: - Burnt areas in January 2000. - TREES layer as background, - National borders and - National Parks boundaries.

UNEP.NET Europe (2002)
The goal of the European Regional Portal is to make available the best existing sources of information on the European environment at regional, sub-regional and national levels, and means of integrating, analysing and adding value to the same, for improved environmental management and related decision-making. This Portal has particularly been developed to support UNEP's integrated environment assessment process, most notably the GEO report.

Guinea Project (2000)
Guinea, in West Africa, has been hosting hundreds of thousands of refugees from Liberia and Sierra Leone since the early 1990s. When the Secretary General of the United Nations, Mr. Annan, visited Guinea he was impressed by the efforts made to host all these refugees, but he was also shown the environmental impacts of this. He asked UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme, the principle environment body of the United Nations) to assist Guinea in assessing the environmental impacts of the refugees in Guinea. This website gives an overview of UNEP’s progress in the assessment project.

This tool allows the visualisation of data on natural disasters. Users may perform zooms, pan to a particular area, add different layers of general data including cities, national parks, etc... Different backgrounds can be chosen to highlight different components reflecting vulnerability, such as population density, Human Development Index (HDI) or the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Layers of natural disasters can be added including earthquakes, fires, floods, cyclones and tsunamis.
