Tailor-made Training on River Morphology and Flood Risk using State-of-the-Art Open Satellite Data and Processing Tools

The main objective is to enhance the capacity of DWIR staff in using innovative data and tools to analyze water resources and support water management. The training is organized with a very practical approach and strongly built upon the ‘learning-by-doing’ principles. Participants use freely accessible satellite-derived data to gain insight in and knowledge of the hydrological system and surface water bodies. The training allows DWIR to embed Google Earth Engine in their decision-making processes. Unique about this training is the focus on DWIR regional-level offices, which have limited capacity in working with these data and tools.
