In the May 2012 Updates, UN-SPIDER called for experts for its Technical Advisory Mission from 30 July to 3 August to Cape Verde. UN-SPIDER received numerous interesting applications for this opportunity and is still in the process of reviewing them. We will disclose the decision to the selected participants as soon as possible. We would like to ask those experts whom UN-SPIDER unfortunately cannot invite this time to stay alert as many other possibilities to participate in UN-SPIDER missions will come up in the near future.
Technical Advisory Missions (TAMs) are within the framework of UN-SPIDER’s technical advisory support, one of the core activities of the programme. TAM experts meet with key disaster management authorities in the Government, UN agencies, regional and international organizations or initiatives and private entrepreneurs, make recommendations and develop guidelines to improve the use of space-based information in disaster-risk management and emergency response.
