ISEPEI stands for “In-Service ICT Training for Environmental Professionals” and was launched in 2013 as a flagship project of the Eye On Earth Initiative (https://eye-on-earth.net). The Project aims to bridge the gap between ICTs and the environment through running executive education workshops in cooperation with global ICT and thematic world-leading organizations (UN agencies, European Commission, GEO Secretariat, Esri, Google, Airbus, Hexagon, among others). Participants are informed about the latest relevant innovations in Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs), such as Geographic Information Systems and space technologies, and their potential use in a variety of public policy and environmental applications.
Two workshops are offered in Budapest in 2018:
1) 25-29 June 2018 – UNDP-CEU workshop on Innovations in Disaster Risk Reduction.
Based on UNDP and other experts’ experience, this workshop will highlight recent innovative solutions in Disaster Risk Reduction and how they are empowering both decision-makers and citizens to play a proactive role in managing disaster risks and providing more effective disaster response.
2) 2- 6 July 2018 – UNOOSA-CEU workshop on Geospatial Solutions for Sustainable Water Management.
This workshop offers lectures and hands-on sessions for effective monitoring and management of water resources using geographic information systems (GIS) and satellite technologies.
The workshops are targeted at representatives of regional and country offices of UN agencies, National Focal Points of international conventions, relevant government agencies, researchers and civil society working in thematic areas (water management and disaster risk reduction). No prior experience in ICTs and geospatial technologies is required. Tuition fee waivers are available for qualified applicants.
