«Preliminary comprehensive assessment of disaster risks at the level of the Kara-Unkur water basin»
As a result of the applied research on the UNDP project (Project ID: 00081173
) "Integrated disaster risk Assessment at the level of the Kara-Unkur water
basin", four types of activities were carried out in this final report in accordance with the terms of reference.
According to Activity 1, information is provided on the
remote and ground-based modern research methods used within the framework of this project, and information on the
necessary data for analysis, processing and generalization of complex information available in the database of
various organizations on the varieties of the series is different
thematic emergencies occurring in the study area:
earthquakes, mudflows and coastal erosion, landslides, avalanches, rockfalls,
meteorological phenomena (rain, hail, background temperature and its changes, floods and
atmospheric precipitation), widely spread in the basin of the river Kara-Unkur, Market-
Korgon district of Jalal-Abad region of Kyrgyzstan. As a result
, the content and scope of work, activities, components, resources and implementation models were determined
, and the procedure for conducting disaster risk assessment at the level of
the studied Bazar-Korgon administrative district.
According to Activity 2, the list of requirements for
purchased satellite images developed in the CAIIZ is given, where the boundaries and criteria for
selecting the ordered satellite images are specifically defined. This activity provides
information about information received from funds, published sources and other
materials, including cartographic data
on the distribution of georisks prepared for their vectorization, as well as the most important characteristics of emergencies for their
inclusion in the modernized questionnaire form about historical
natural disasters that have occurred. As a result, archival and stock materials on
natural disasters and emergency situations at the central and local levels were collected.
The interviewing of employees of the MSSU of the pilot districts and representatives of the
communities on the historical disasters that have occurred was conducted. A primary
emergency distribution catalog has been formed in a format agreed with partners.
According to Activity 3, descriptions of remote and ground-based methods are presented
geodetic survey, as well as processing of the primary results of field surveys
and complex mapping of hazardous processes and phenomena in the Karaunkur River basin.
As a result, complex profiles of hazard maps were developed and their
typification according to the degree of danger was carried out. Field studies were carried out to assess
hazards and map their degree of risk. Comprehensive studies have been conducted to
assess and predict the possible activation of mudslides, floods, and coastal erosion.
Preliminary processing of the research results was carried out and the stage was started
development and creation of GIS maps of danger from natural emergencies.
In operation 4, the result of this division of activities was
studied various methods of assessing vulnerability, impacts and losses from disaster risk
for residents and settlements in the pilot area of research has shown that
the determination of possible damage are in law a number of shortcomings
the fact that there are no institutionalized normative documents
According to activity 5, the above recommendations for application have been developed
risk profiles in development planning together with local authorities,
public administration and copyright holders. As a result
, recommendations were developed for their coordination with interested partners.
