Capacity-building and the strengthening of institutional arrangements are the key to increasing the ability of agencies at the national level and organizations at regional and international levels to effectively use space-based information and services for disaster reduction, preparedness, response, and recovery.
Taking into consideration the target audience for such capacity-building efforts, which is composed of decision makers and staff in agencies and regional and international organizations, networks of practitioners, and communities of practice; and taking into consideration ongoing training efforts conducted by Regional Centres for Space Science and Technology Education which are affiliated to the United Nations, Centres of Excellence, and Universities around the world, three databases of training opportunities has been established and are continuously updated by UN-SPIDER.
Elements included in these databases include the type of training event, schedule and duration, language and place where the events are conducted, topics, requirements, proposed target audience, and complementary information.
