Training on Wetland Vulnerability and Analysis using GIS and Earth observation data
About The Event
Wetlands are areas where water is the primary factor controlling the environment and the associated plant and animal life. Global Wetland systems have witnessed incomparable anthropogenically driven degradation over the past decades. As drastic degradation continues, there is an evident need for real-time data and information about Africa’s Wetland systems for accurate, and reliable monitoring and assessment of changes.
This training is organized by Makerere University, Department of Geomatics and Land Management, Uganda and Regional Center for Mapping and Research (RCMRD), and delivered by ESIPPS International Ltd, Uganda under the auspices of the African Union /EU GMES and Africa Programme.
