EO4SD - Training workshop in Myanmar:

01 February 2019

EO4SD is the European Space Agency (ESA) activity on making satellite data useful in a development context, where DHI GRAS is priming the EO4SD “water” activities.

In this context, we are part of several training workshops in Myanmar interfacing with three Myanmar development projects funded by the Asian Development Bank and the World Bank. The outcome of the training's are enhanced capabilities for key project and governmental staff in understanding environmental changes to the Ayeyarwady Delta and Central Dry Zone – areas that are prone to a lot of problems including flooding, changes in rainfall patterns and drought.

The gallery below is from a week-long training in Naypyidaw on the 11th-15th of June , where our colleague Torsten Bondo was present (jointly organised by Satelligence, Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (ITC) of the University of Twente and DHI GRAS).
