    Webinar aims

    Plethora of EO sources and the size of EO data has forced to make use of large-scale IT infrastructure to easily manage, visualize and generate useful indicators. The EO4SD Climate Resilience cluster project has deployed a web based (EO4SD CR) platform to provide climate action programmes with enhanced climate risk management capabilities allowing users to explore the data and apply on demand analytics. 

    This webinar will be a hands-on session and a guided tutorial in which structured exercises will enable participants to familiarize, navigate and extract the information required in their assessments. 

      

    Webinar learning outcomes
