Combatting Disaster in Arid Regions Using Space-Based and Geospatial Technologies

UN-SPIDER conducted a training programme on Combatting Disaster in Arid Regions Using Space-Based and Geospatial Technologies from 18 to 20 February 2020 in Istanbul, Turkey. The event was the first attempt of broadening UN-SPIDER efforts to include countries in a vast swath of arid regions in Asia and North Africa, and to increase awareness of the need for space technology to combat disasters in the context of a changing climate and growing populations. The programme was jointly organised with Delta State University, a Regional Support Office of UN-SPIDER.
