Online Learning Resources


UN-SPIDER acts as a facilitator of capacity-building in the use of space-based information for disaster management and as a gateway to space information for disaster management support. In lines with these roles, the programme curates information about in person as well as online learning opportunities provided by third parties that aim to support users in building skills in using space data and relevant applications to develop information products.

The table below lists online courses that aim at strengthening capacities to acquire, process, and map space-based information to support decision-making. The courses are offered by a wide range of organizations and are displayed below for information purposes.

Please note: The events listed on this page are ongoing (on-demand) online courses. These can usually be attended at any date and time. Registration may be required. For live instructor-led online courses, please visit the Online Training Courses page.
