Earth Observations for Humanitarian Applications

05 Juin 2024 - 19 Juin 2024

NASA’s Applied Remote Sensing Training Program (ARSET) has opened a new open, online webinar series: Earth Observations for Humanitarian Applications. Refugees, internally displaced people (IDPs), and other displaced populations are made more vulnerable to climate change impacts due to their socio-political marginalization. This three-part, intermediate training presents concrete strategies for mapping localized climate conditions with risks faced by refugee and IDP communities around the world.

The training will focus on flood risk assessments and specific challenges for assessing flood risk in refugee and IDP camps; gauging long-term heat stress in refugee camps and the challenges with decision making surrounding heat risk; and monitoring drought effects on agricultural landscapes in refugee settings using Earth observations (EO) to explore the correlations between anomalies in crop productivity and weather-based factors

Les zones arides d'Afrique sont le berceau de certaines des civilisations et des espèces les plus extraordinaires du monde, des anciens royaumes aux éléphants sauvages en passant par les «céréales miracles» comme le mil et le sorgho - mais le changement climatique n'a pas été favorable à ces paysages.
