The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) invites applications to a theoretical and hands-on training on the use of Earth observation and geospatial information technology.
This training is exclusively for women in Pakistan who have completed a bachelor’s degree or are enrolled in a university-level curriculum.
ICIMOD has been organizing the “Empowering women in geospatial information technology” training under its SERVIR Hindu Kush Himalaya (SERVIR-HKH) Initiative for the past two years. In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, ICIMOD piloted a remotely organized version of the four-day in-person training for women in Nepal in May 2020. In its fourth iteration, the training course is being extended exclusively to eligible women in Pakistan and will provide them with theoretical and practical knowledge in the use of EO data and GIT using real-world examples from the HKH region.
Upon completion of the training, the participants will have a better understanding of the concepts and applications of GIS and RS, which will enable them to use the knowledge gained professionally.
A total of 20 young women participants with an academic background in the fields of geography, science, engineering, survey, environmental science and/or information technology are expected to participate in this training.
Interested candidates may apply for the participation using the application form available here.
