On the occasion of the National Resilience Day, in line with the United Nations (UN) International Day for Disaster Risk Reduction, Predict worked alongside local authorities to help improve the resilience of territories and their inhabitants by reminding them of the right behaviours to adopt in the face of major risks :
On 13 and 14 October at Ciboure in the Pyrénées Atlantiques, Predict took part in the O! days. These days were an opportunity to improve the risk culture of the general public and to remind them of the right behaviours to adopt.
In Frontignan, Predict was present to take part in the tsunami crisis simulation exercise. This exercise enabled the Hérault prefecture to test the distribution of the FR-ALERT message to the various players.
In the evening, at Saint-Clément de Rivière in Hérault, Predict took part in a public awareness event on major risks.
Predict engineers were also present at the Ain, Aisne and Allier mayors’ fairs on 13 October and at the Isère mayors’ fair on 14 October.
The French Ministry of Ecology and Energy, with the support of the French Ministry of the Interior and Overseas Departments and Territories, has launched the 8th annual Rain-Flood campaign for the Mediterranean region, an area particularly exposed to intense rainfall and flooding.
To help you cope with these dangerous phenomena, we invite you to read the instructions for protecting yourself, your loved ones and your property at “pluie-inondation.gouv.fr”
Let’s be prepared for major risks!

Invited by CNES (Centre National d’Etude Spatial) to the Spatial Climate Observatory Congress on May 30, 2023 at Bercy, Predict presented the Gade Lapli project. This project provides indicators and services using satellite data to estimate rainfall and flood areas. Tested on the highly vulnerable territory of Haiti, the operational objective (warning, crisis management) also serves to understand climate change by identifying and characterizing extreme events.
