Organizers: ICIMOD and Esri India
Along with Esri India, we are organizing this half-day webinar to share deeper insights into the trends, best practices, and latest developments in the field of geospatial technologies.
The primary objective of the webinar is to share knowledge on using innovative geospatial technologies – ESRI technology-based applications and tools – to address key mountain issues with a primary focus on disaster management, forestry and wildlife, and health, including the COVID-19 pandemic.
Participants will include representatives from national/provincial agencies and non-governmental organizations, research organizations, technologists, and technology enthusiasts in Nepal.
The webinar is open and free for the public.
Countries across the world have been using geospatial technology to develop innovative tools and solutions to address major environmental and socioeconomic issues. With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic posing unprecedented challenges across the world, geospatial technologies have aided countries in mapping the extent of the spread and monitoring infrastructure needs in response.
Our Regional Programme on Mountain Environment Regional Information System (MENRIS) contributes to effective evidence-based decision-making processes by governments, communities, and individuals using scientific data, Earth observation information, and geospatial technologies in the areas of agriculture, environment, natural resources, and climate change. The programme has been promoting the use of geospatial and Earth observation technology to address various mountain issues in the Hindu Kush Himalaya region.
