Estimating Cities Destruction
By leveraging satellite data, levels of destruction can be estimated in conflict zones to help the assessment of reconstruction efforts. This analysis has been conducted by Masae Analytics in Ukraine (Mariupol), Iraq (Mosul), Syria (Eastern Ghouta) and Yemen (Sana'a and Hodeidah).

How we did it
High-resolution satellite imagery
Sentinel-1 Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data
By spotting incoherencies between before/after conflict imagery/data, destruction intensity can be estimated at a granular level
