Flood and Drought Management Tools

Webinar: Use of satellite data for drought and flood management

Nov 24, 2016 from 03:00 PM to 04:00 PM

UNEP-DHI Partnership in collaboration with the International Water Association (IWA) and DHI is launching a series of technical webinars focusing on innovative approaches to Floods and Droughts planning and management for basins and water utilities. These webinars are primarily based on the outcomes of the ongoing Flood and Drought Management Tools project, but will also include guest presentations from external stakeholders and relevant organisations.

These webinars are targeted at water practitioners of all levels, including policy-makers, technical staff and water managers, as well as water educators. The aim of these series of webinars is to give insight to the role that innovative approaches can play in supporting floods and droughts management at all scales - from basin to catchment, water utility and industry levels. Presentations will cover a broad range of technical tools, emerging technology advances, as well as practical experiences in applying these tools and technologies on ground.

The series will include following two types of webinars (the type of  webinar will be identified in the series programme):

  • Technical webinar: typically a shorter session (30 min) with a single technology or tool presentation and a live demonstration
  • Thematic topic webinar (30 to 50 min): with 2 or 3 presentations around a specific thematic topic or case study. Examples of thematic topics include urban flooding, drought management in Africa, water utility planning, etc.

You can now register for the first Webinar in the Flood and Drought Management webinar series: Use of satellite data for drought and flood management, November 24th at 15.00 CET. To register and secure your seat, click here.
