This lecture summarised EEFIT’s response to the Haitian earthquake and reflected the combined remote work with local partners in the field.

Learn about the effects of landslides; structural damage disaster preparedness, response and recovery; remote sensing; data sources; and interactions between local partners and the remote.

Reasons to watch: 

  • Gain a better understanding of remote earthquake response missions

  • Better understanding of coordination between remote team and local partners

  • Understand unique considerations of Haiti – both geotechnical and socioeconomic

  • Understanding of damage typologies and responses
