SDI for environmental protection and disaster risk management

SDI for environmental protection and 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 field works.
– Preparing materials for lectures.
– Preparing materials and instructions for exercises and field works.
– Revising according to comments and experts remarks.

Description

Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) is essential for environmental protection and disaster risk management. For example, INSPIRE, which is a European SDI initiative, has been established to support better environment monitoring and protection in Europe. The main focus of this course will be on the innovative methods, technologies and standards for sharing and using spatial information required for environmental protection and disaster risk management. The course will be composed of theoretical, practical, and independent studies.
By taking the course, it is expected that students will understand the advantages and importance of SDI in environmental protection and disaster risk management. They should also be able to use proper and innovative models, technologies and tools for the storage and management of spatial data (especially Big data) as well as sharing data among producers and user groups in an interoperable environment. Facilitating the accessibility and operational use of spatial data in the planning and decision-making process is the main use of SDI in environmental protection and disaster risk management.
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 methodologies in ICT and SIST.

Related assumptions and risks

– Course content will be agreed at the second preparations meeting.
– Course development groups work together via agreed online tools such as skype and e-mail.
– The courses shall be developed based on the Bologna system.
– The course will be led by a course coordinator from a European participant.
– The course will be developed to cove10 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. However, aaccreditation of the courses may take much time due to bureaucracy.
