UN-SPIDER supported a training workshop on the topic “Space technology for disaster risk management and emergency response” at the National Institute of Disaster Management, New Delhi, from 2 to 4 April 2012. It was the third such training workshop organized jointly by the National Institute of Disaster Management and UN-SPIDER.
The training course brought together 25 key participants and resources persons.
The event provided a platform to the State Disaster Management Authorities and providers of space based information (State Remote Sensing Applications Centres, National Remote Sensing Centres of Indian Space Research Organisation) to discuss latest systems, tools, technologies, products and best practices. The resources persons provided the latest trends in disaster risk reduction and space technology interventions. UN-SPIDER and NIDM have hosted such events since 2010. This was third such workshop in the series based on the recommendations of previous workshops.
