The assessment is done with the Flash Environment Assessment Tool (FEAT). FEAT provides a standardised methodology to help disaster workers identify, assess, and prioritize industrial hazards and impacts due to chemical releases for disaster preparedness and response. It also provides the entry point for more comprehensive environmental assessments. Although there are thousands of potentially hazardous operations, FEAT focuses on 63 types of “high risk” industrial operations and associated chemicals in order to prioritise hazards for emergency planning. Impact types are based on the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). All sites on this dashboard have sustained some damage, which was identified by satellite imagery. The type and quantity of chemicals stored on site are based rule of thumbs proposed by FEAT. The dashboard presents the potential hazards in case of a release of these chemicals, which needs to be confirmed on site
Information based on satellite imagery dated 8 March 2017. The assessment was carried out by UN Environment / OCHA joint unit.
