Global climate is changing, and will continue to change, shaping differential risks. Impacts from contemporary climate-related extremes, as heat waves, droughts, floods, cyclones, and wildfires, disclose significant vulnerability and exposure of ecosystems and many human systems to current climate variability. These changes impact not only the environment but also public health and require emergency preparedness. Disaster risk management has become a key element of relief, rehabilitation, and climate change adaptation programs, as well as development policies and programs. Space-based technology (Earth Observation/Remote Sensing) and geospatial intelligence and their applications possess high potential in disaster risk management.
This seminar will address the use of space technologies for various applications with an emphasis on arid regions, as well as other social, economic and ecological water sustainability challenges.
