UN-SPIDER cordially invites you to join the UN-SPIDER Regional Workshop "Building upon Regional Space-based Solutions for Disaster Management and Emergency Response for Africa" to take place from 25 to 28 May 2010 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. This workshop, which is being organised together with the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa and supported by the Government of Austria, will be the major outreach event organised by UN-SPIDER on space-based information for disaster risk reduction and emergency management for the African continent in 2010.
Certainly, this regional workshop will ensure that participants become aware of the full potential that space-based information offers for disaster risk management and emergency response and how to take advantage of the existing regional and international opportunities in this regard. This will eventually contribute to a reduction in loss of lives and property due to disasters in the African continent in the future.
We invite you to look at the information note for the workshop containing detailed information about the programme, logistics and limited available funding support, and to submit your application through our online application form at www.un-spider.org/workshop-addis-2010
