The primary objective of this training on remote sensing and GIS in climate change, food security and agriculture is enhancing the abilities of technical staff required in food security analysis, water evaluation as well as farming by providing them having a comprehension on the use of spatial as well as Earth Observation information as anything to integrate info on climate change, agriculture, and foods defense in a meaningful and innovative means.
By completing this exercise program, individuals are will be prepared to:
• Understand the fundamental ideas of GIS along with Remote Sensing
• Understand ideas &amp; crucial frameworks within Food Security Analysis
• Comprehend the connection between local environmental shift, farming and servings protection
• Apply GIS as well as Remote Sensing as Decision assistance program for Climate Change, Agriculture as well as Food Security (CCAFS).
• Use GIS info in preparing FS interventions through spatial multi criteria analysis
• Apply RS and GIS for designing implementations of big scale first warning systems
• Apply remote sensing info and image processing strategies to maintain computer monitor of select CCAFS indicators
