Program Overview

Program Description:
This workshop aims at bridging the gap between environmental / public policy professionals and cutting-edge technologies and their practical application by bringing ICT developers and experts (e.g. the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs and Esri) into the classroom and arranging their direct communication with decision-making groups. An UNOOSA representative will be conducting a day-long workshop on remote sensing applications in environmental monitoring and natural resource management and an Esri representative will be conducting an additional day-long workshop on the potential application of Esri products in water management. In addition, the workshop will be featuring an array of faculty from leading UN agencies and global institutions, including representatives from the the UNECE Water Convention Secretariat and the Black Sea Commission, among others.

The primary focus of this workshop is ICT applications in water management and water security. It will cover a number of technologies including remote sensing, geospatial technologies, data publishing, and decision-support systems, among others.
