1. Political Commitment

By developing strong partnerships at international, regional, national and local scale, we are able to work within institutional frameworks that enhance the delivery of DRR projects and ensure the sustainability of the measures.

With a history of developing standards, codes of practice and legislation in Mongolia and Bhutan in relation to vulnerability and risk reduction we are well placed to formulate the strategic partnerships needed to navigate this complex area.

2. Understanding Disaster Risk

Collaboration on world-class research projects such as the I-React Early Warning system, and partnerships with world-leading flood risk modellors offer us a unique perspective and insight into risk assessment.

With in-house experts in emergency and development practice, we pride ourselves on excelling at understanding the interaction of the physical and socio-economic aspects of vulnerability assessment putting people and communities at the centre of all of our work.

The development of low cost sensors for hazard detection and monitoring as an integrated solution for early warning systems puts us at the forefront of technological advances in hazard detection.

3. Preparedness

Working with communities to develop their own emergency plans for when a flood strikes is key reducing the vulnerabilities that lead to disaster. Through collaborative and participatory approaches to community emergency planning we ensure that the measures in place are sustainable, maintained and appropriate.

We can help your organisation work with stakeholders such as government agencies, emergency services, technical expertise and community leaders. By understanding underlying causes of risks and vulnerabilities such as gender inequality we can ensure that our projects are an entrypoint for transformative and sustainable change.

4. Knowledge Development

Ongoing collaboration with universities and research centres in the UK and across the world offers Aquobex access to leading research that informs our responses. With in-house research expertise, we have developed research programmes that focus on increased resilience of communities and improved recovery.

We have developed training schemes in Mauritius that promote increased engagement and increased local capacities for dealing with disasters and we have designed and delivered disaster risk reduction and management training workshops for the World Bank.

5. Risk Reduction Measures

With a large portfolio of protective solutions we are able to call on the most appropriate measure in any situation. Ranging from large scale engineering products that protect embankments to small scale, non-intrusive, natural drainage solutions, we can source and deliver the solution that works.

We have a long history of working with government agencies, emergency services, local communities and private clients to physically protect their assets and livelihoods.

6. Early Warning

With the cutting edge multi-hazard early warning system, I-React, that integrates existing systems and data with new sensor networks and community engagement, we can offer holistic solutions for improved emergency management and risk reduction.

Local, national and regional scale emergency response plans can be built on the back of I-React with emergency services and humanitarian organisations involved in the development, implementation and roll out of the system.

7. Emergency Management

We have experience of developing and implementing emergency response mandates for Agence Francaise de Développement and the development of national disaster risk assessment and a suite of worst credible disaster scenarios.

We have delivered programmes to improve the capabilities and capacities of first response agencies including a gap analysis conducted against the suite of worst credible disaster scenarios. We also carried out development and investment needs analysis for statutory, 3rd sector and volunteer responders.

8. Recovery

With a dedication to ‘Building Back Better’, Aquobex are experts in the specification of remedial work to shelter and infrastructure that has been affected by flooding and other hazards.

Research partnerships with Oxford Brookes University School of Architecture and Centre for Development and Emergency Practice are driving the much needed empirical evidence necessary for avoiding the vulnerabilities that existed before a disaster.
