GIS & RS for disaster risk management

GIS & RS for disaster risk management

Tasks

– Considering regional and national priorities and needs.
– Determining innovative and modern characteristics of the course.
– Deciding course outlines.
– Defining lectures/lessons.
– Defining exercises and lab works.
– Preparing materials for lectures.
– Preparing materials and instructions for exercises and lab works.
– Revising according to comments and experts remarks.

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 outlines will be agreed at the second preparations meeting.
– Course development groups work together via agreed online tools such as skype and e-mails.
– 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 will then be translated into Uzbek, Kyrgyz, and Karakalpak languages.
– No major risks is for the development of the course. However, accreditation of the courses may take much time due to bureaucracy.
