Building Efficiency of Utilization of Satellite- Based Information during Emergency Response for CLMV Countries

 

International Training Course on

Building Efficiency of Utilization of Satellite- Based Information

 during Emergency Response for CLMV Countries

30th August – 2nd September 2016

Sirindhorn Center for Geo-Informatics (SCGI), Space Krenovation Park,

Sri Racha, Thailand

Background and Objectives

As exposure and vulnerability to extreme events in Southeast Asian continue to increase, there is an urgent need to integrate satellite-based information and other data for disaster preparedness and management in Southeast Asia. Additionally, these countries lack sufficient strategies to plan, assess, prevent or mitigate the effects of extreme events based on geo-informatics  and satellite information application.

The satellite-based information plays an important role in disaster monitoring and it is proven to be an efficient tool for reducing the disaster impact. To build disaster resilience in the regions needs such advanced technology with low cost and high quality data, as well as human capability building to enhance disaster management.

 

Objectives

This course will provide a unique opportunity to have knowledge of satellite-based information application and strengthen international cooperation on disaster management  for CLMV countries.

Increasing Resilience through Earth Observation

Increasing Resilience through Earth Observation

6-10 October 2014 at GISTDA’s training facility, Bangkok, Thailand

Under ITC and GISTDA Collaboration

Background and Objectives

As exposure and vulnerability to extreme events in Southeast Asian continue to increase, there is an urgent need to integrate hazard assessment and disaster risk management into strategic planning and sustainable development. Additionally, the impact of disasters is rapidly growing worldwide. However, many countries and development agencies so far do not consider hazard and disaster risk in development planning, and lack sufficient strategies to plan, assess, prevent or mitigate the effects of extreme events.

Objectives: This course will provide a unique opportunity to integrate a multidisciplinary assessment of hazard and risk into spatial planning and sustainable development and use earth observation-base solutions to increase disaster resilience.

Benefits: This course will increase and improve personnel capability in the region to respond to current disasters, learn how to manage and mitigate these serious situations and know more about the latest developments in earth observation-based solutions that contribute to improved preparedness, mitigation planning and disaster resilience in the region.
