One of the main objectives of the programme is to support the management of emergencies in the first hours after a disaster. Following the recent earthquakes, the Department of Civil Protection of the European Community activated this service, thanks to the technicians who visually assess the damage observing satellites’ images. Copernicus also aims to improve the management of the environment, understanding and mitigating the effects of climate change and ensure civil security.
