In an effort to strengthen the knowledge and capacities of government officials at the national and local levels in South and South West Asian countries in using Information and Communication Technology for Disaster Risk Reduction, APCICT is holding a Virtual Training on Digital Technologies for Disaster Risk Management, from 1 to 5 March 2021.
The workshop will be organized in collaboration with the Geoinformatics Center (GIC) of the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) and ITC-University of Twente and will be conducted in eight sessions. The training is based on the APCICT Academy Module on “ICT for Disaster Risk Management”, which aims to equip policymakers with a practical skillset to leverage ICT tools and applications for disaster mitigation, prevention, preparedness, response and recovery.
