Human security deals with risks occurring to people. EUROSENSE’s products make use of EO information to inform precisely about the extent and exposure to specific risks in a multi-risks concept of Assets Mapping. Knowing where people are and whether they are vulnerable to specific risks are two major research questions that are addressed in the Services and Applications for Emergency Response project (SAFER) in the Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES) program. Flood portfolio poster and paper have been presented at the GMES Operational Capacity Workshop - SOFIA, 18-19 March 2011.
