C-RISe Training Programme and Capacity Building

One of the primary C-­RISe objectives is to build local capacity in using satellite data to provide scientific decision support for strategy development, governance and management of coastal areas to increase resilience to coastal hazards.

The development of local capacity to use coastal altimetry data in combination with other data sets and information sources is seen as a key target, necessary to ensure a viable long-­term service.

Training is being provided through a series of workshops (in Mozambique and Madagascar) together with online training material. These tools include Bilko (see https://www.learn-eo.org/software.php) a tool first developed for UNESCO to provide a free earth observation (EO) image processing capability for education use, which is being updated to include data from the Sentinel satellites.
