InaSAFE is free software that produces realistic natural hazard impact scenarios for better planning, preparedness and response activities. It provides a simple but rigorous way to combine data from scientists, local governments and communities to provide insights into the likely impacts of future disaster events.
InaSAFE was conceived and initially developed by the Indonesia's National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB) and the Australian Government, through the Australia-Indonesia Facility for Disaster Reduction (AIFDR) and the World Bank - Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (World Bank-GFDRR).
InaSAFE is a Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) project, published under the GPL V3 license. As such you may freely download, share and (if you like) modify the software.
InaSAFE is a plugin for QGIS. QGIS (and InaSAFE) works on OSX, Windows and Linux. QGIS is available for free at download.qgis.org
