Stakeholder Workshop on Earth observation-based information products for drought risk on a national basis

Space Research Institute (NASU-SSAU), ZFL, University of Bonn, UNU-EHS, UNOOSA / UN-SPIDER

Mon, May 14 - Wed, May 16 2018

The Stakeholder Workshop on Earth observation-based information products for drought risk on a national basis took place from 14 to 16 May 2018 at the Conference Centre of the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences and the premises of the Kiev Polytechnic Institute in Kiev, Ukraine.

Objectives

The objective of the EvIDENz stakeholder workshop is to make decision makers and technical staff of several institutions of Ukraine aware of the workflows developed by ZFL and UNU-EHS to assess the impacts of droughts, and to discuss with decision makers ways to incorporate the use of the workflows to generate data to be incorporated in the reports related to the indicators of the SFDRR. In addition, the workshop will be used to train technical staff on the use of the workflows as presented in the UN-SPIDER Knowledge Portal.
