MAPPING THE WAY TO A RESILIENT FUTURE
The objective of SARVA is to profile the vulnerability of municipalities and proactively strengthen the ability of the people of South Africa to cope with a range of natural and anthropogenic hazards (including climate change, biodiversity loss, and epidemics).
SARVA combines multi-disciplinary datasets from a range of organisations in a single point of access.
Risk and vulnerability updates
South Africa is at risk from a wide range of natural and technological hazards that can lead to disasters such as droughts, floods, major fires, tornadoes, major oil spills and even earthquakes. …
SARVA is an initiative of the Department of Science and Innovation and forms a 10-year Global Change Grand Challenge. It is currently in its third phase of implementation with this phase focusing on data access and value-added products for decision-making.
SARVA is a ‘living atlas’ that will be updated quarterly as new data is published to SAEON’s Open Data Repository.
SARVA supports open data and provides access to global change resources – including datasets and services, static content, references to documentation and reports, and other digital objects.
