Water issues in developing countries aren't restricted to a water source and sanitation services. Water shortages experienced by owners across the region is plagued with persistent cycles of flooding as well as the drought that are increasing in severity and frequency, inside portion exacerbated by climate shift, as well as coupled with population growth, great upland watershed destruction, and nonequitable distribution of water resources.

There's demand in improving access to water, improving community capability to control and much better use water resources, improving drinking water resource infrastructure in semi-arid and arid places, improving water sanitation as well as hygiene methods, in addition to defending watersheds.

Program Objectives

By completing this training program, participants are will be able to:-

• Evaluate the spatial info needs in Water Sanitation and Hygiene

• Use GIS and RS as something for examining Wash projects Activities

• Assess geospatial data availability

• Comprehend the advantages of Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) discovered Wash programs

• Carry out water and sanitation modeling using GIS

• Collect info using Mobile info gathering tools

• Do important data analysis using statistical software

• Design and put into action their very own GIS projects which include remote sensing information, GPS based field information in an excellent geospatial framework
