- Three literature reviews were produced which cover the topics of GIS, non-volcanic hazard maps and landscape studies (Landscape studies: Katherine Brookfield (lead) with Catharine Ward Thompson/Lisa Mackenzie; Other (non-volcanic) Hazard Maps: Danielle Charlton (lead) with Eliza Calder; GIS/Cartography: Jason Dykes (lead) with Alistair Langmuir.
- Three interdisciplinary workshops took place (Edinburgh, Guatemala 2017, Guatemala 2019).
- A substantial network of practitioners and researchers across Central America has been established and is still growing.
- Academic institutions in the UK worked together to discuss an interdisciplinary challenge.
- An active Facebook group was created and currently has 68 members.
- The project was presented at least three international conferences (EGU Vienna, April 2017, IAVCEI Portland Jul 2017, UNISDR and at the Central America Geological Congress, in San Salvador).
- An official letter of recommendations and suggested areas for further research has been developed by, and received from, Wilson Galo, Director, Concertación Regional para la Gestión de Riesgos.
- Co-development by INSIVUMEH and Edinburgh of volcanic crisis maps.
- Co-development by INSIVUMEH, Edinburgh and MapAction of interactive 3D volcanic crisis maps. These were the first interactive 3D web maps of any volcano world-wide.
- Reflective opinion piece in Guatemalan current affairs magazine La Gazeta (Langmuir, 2019).
- A feature length documentary on the Fuego eruption and response produced by an award-winning Guatemalan-based film producer (in edition stage).
- A network of politically engaged civil society leaders living and working in communities in the vicinity of the volcano.
- A number of preliminary in-depth interviews with survivors of the eruption of the Fuego volcano and Hurricane Stan.
- Dialogues and workshops with NGO and state actors throughout Central America
These are some of the exciting extra projects and collaborations which have happened as a result of this project:
