What is CDM?
CDERA’S INFORMATION POLICY
The INTEGRATED DECISION-MAKING SUPPORT SYSTEM
A CDERA / SOUTHCOM/HAP INITIATIVE
A Management Tool which incorporates geographic information systems (GIS), visualization, and analytical models, responds to requirements for hazard analysis, risk and vulnerability assessments, mitigation and preparedness planning, and education, training and exercise support.
The true goal in integrated decision-making support is to provide the decision-maker with the ability to look into the future. That is, predict in advance the risk and vulnerability of populations and infrastructure to hazards, both natural and man-induced. This requires that data be transformed into knowledge..
Issues for Consideration
The direction in which the emergency management community is going that will leverage technological advances and lead to sustainable development
