The Global Crisis Atlas is a service of the Commission that provides a catalogue of digital maps produced by its in-house science service, the Joint Research Centre, to meet the needs of the European External Action service (EEAS) INTCEN (Intelligence and Situation Centre) and the Service for Foreign Policy Instruments (FPI). The service is financed by the Instrument contributing to Stability and Peace. The JRC provides situation maps on complex crisis (currently: Iraq-Syria, Yemen, Libya, Migration) and on areas where violent events occurred (e.g. in Libreville and Kinshasa in September 2016).
The maps (usually printable in A3, A4 format) are at country or regional level and are split into the following categories: Baseline (Country political maps or similar) Natural Hazard (maps related to natural disasters e.g. floods, earthquake…) Armed conflict (maps related to conflict) Security (maps related to security issues) Thematic (maps where a particular theme is represented e.g. ethnicity) Policy (generic maps with basic information related to policy implementation)
The Global Crisis Atlas is intended to increase the awareness of geographic and crisis related issues, to provide the information basis to support decision making in potential crisis situations and in planning projects.
