The European Space Agency’s Earth Observation for Sustainable Development (EO4SD) Climate Resilience Cluster is hosting a free webinar series to provide insight about the potential of Earth Observation (EO) to support climate-resilient decision making at the regional and national scale. The seven-part series is will be hosted every Thursday at 16:00 (CEST) starting 11th June 2020. The series is aimed at all those interested in developing a foundational knowledge of EO and how it can be applied practically in the context of climate-resilience projects and programmes.
Registration is now open. Sign up for one or more webinars in the series here. More information about the individual sessions can be found below.
Drawing on the EO4SD Climate Resilience Cluster’s extensive experience working with leading international finance institutions including the Asian Development Bank, The World Bank, the International Finance Corporation, Africa Risk Capacity and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the webinar series will provide ‘hands-on’ sessions and guided tutorials for existing climate resilience platforms.
Over the course of the series, participants will: understand the basics of EO data in the context of climate resilience, learn how, why and when to use EO data to inform decision making, learn about applying EO data to manage key climate risks including flooding and drought, and learn practical skills about accessing and using EO data tools and platforms.
Webinar 04 – Water world: How EO data is deepening our knowledge of flood risk and water resource management – 2nd July 2020/16:00 CEST.
Earth Observation (EO) data and services are vital tools for the water sector, supporting flood events, and conducting wetland inventory status in rural and urban areas. EO provides valuable information (Flood extent, historical flood events etc.) with the aim to assist authorities to prepare the most effective actions to manage flood risk and develop plans to tackle disasters. The fourth webinar of series will present in detail how Earth Observation data with different spatial and temporal resolution can contribute to flood risk, water and wetness management.
