I have been working a lot in Indonesia this year on the InaSAFE project. InaSAFE is a QGIS plugin (also available as a web extension for GeoNode) for assessment of scenarios following a natural disaster such as a flood, earthquake, volcano, tsunami etc. This month the InaSAFE team (which consists of developers from around the world, funded by AUSAID and The World Bank / GFDRR) launched version 1.0 of InaSAFE – which involved a phenomenal amount of work from everybody  on the project. The 1.0 release was made at the AMCDRR, a high level conference for disaster risk reduction in Asia, and was even demonstrated to the President of Indonesia which was a great feather in the cap of QGIS and InaSAFE.

You can get your copy by simply opening QGIS (1.7.4 or 1.8), clicking Plugins -> Fetch Python Plugins, then type ‘inasfe’ in the filter box and select InaSAFE 1.0 from the list provided. InaSAFE is completely Free and Open Source (GPL v3) and you can get source code from our github project.
