Experiences of past course participants

“The course was very useful in terms of capacity building through knowledge sharing for faculty and students. More information can be distributed to people by using effective communication technology such as Geographic Information System (GIS) and Remote Sensing (RS). It can predict for natural hazard using GIS and RS. Weget more and more knowledge by attending this course.”

“I believe the course level was perfectly balanced. Basic concepts were highlighted in a new approach and the more advanced ones were simplified for us to grasp properly.”

“The course was useful in the following areas:
1. Exposure application which can be used to monitor SDGs
