GIS & RS for disaster risk management

GIS & RS for disaster risk management

Tasks

– Generate a layout for professional information.
– Present Work Packages (WP) and responsibilities.
– Present the overall needs and regional priorities and detailed planning for requirement analysis for the development of courses.
– Discuss the overall data and functionality needed for the development of iMSEP.
– Present the overall e-learning situation at the partner universities.
– Present the available alumni capacity in the region and EU.
– Organizing the Steering Committee and selecting of the members.
– Organizing the Quality Control group and selecting of the members.
– Formulate a MoU/MoA.

Description

The main attention will be given to recent natural disasters caused by improper environmental protection/management and how SIST can help in mitigation and response to these disasters. The course will be composed of theoretical, practical, field works and independent studies.
By taking the course, it is expected that students will understand the application of GIS & RS in disaster risk management, and also can use proper tools, models and methods for disaster risk reduction, e.g. detecting and analyzing threats developing mitigation scenarios, forecasting, and response planning.
As mentioned earlier, the course content will be decided based on the needs analysis and discussions in the working groups. A modern course shall be developed using innovative methods in GIS & RS. Major disasters in Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan such as droughts and landslides will be the focus while developing lectures and exercises.

Related assumptions and risks

– Course contents will be agreed at the second preparations meeting.
– Course development groups work together via agreed online tools such as skype and e-mail.
– The course shall be developed based on the Bologna system.
– The course development will be led by a course coordinator from a European participant.
– The course will be developed to cover 10 ECTS and in English language, and then it will be translated in to Uzbek, Kyrgyz, and Karakalpak languages.
No major risks are identified for the development of this course. But,
aaccreditation of the courses may take much time due to bureaucracy.
