Access to up-to-date information is vital for decision making in sectors like environmental monitoring, development planning, disaster management, climate change etc. Satellite remote sensing has emerged as a major source of such information that is near real-time and also could be accessed from the extensive quantity of archived data. Free access of data from Landsat series, Sentinel datasets in recent times coupled with the emergence of cloud-based free data analysis and visualization platforms and potentials of combining with GIS, GPS technologies made remote sensing applications more useful, demanding and attractive. In these contexts, Institute of Remote Sensing and GIS (IRS)

Lund University The trend of increasing disasters and related losses is a truly global challenge. The changing global risk landscape due to processes such as climate change, urbanization, and the increasing complexity of modern society poses major challenges for sustainable development and must be addressed with an interdisciplinary approach. A growing number of governments and international organizations acknowledge the necessity of increasing their efforts in disaster risk management and climate change adaptation in order to successfully adjust to changing environments and develop safe and sustainable societies. The Master’s program in Disaster Risk Management and Climate Change Adaptation has support from important

The University of Auckland Focusing on the major issues of disaster resilience and risk reduction, the MDisMgt equips you with the applicable skills to confidently solve complex problems in high-pressure environments. We implement a holistic approach to disaster management and provide the knowledge needed to plan frameworks, create policies, and device solutions. A compulsory component of this program is a research project, where you will demonstrate the critical thinking and analytical skills needed to independently approach a real-world issue in a disaster setting. This program draws on expertise from across the University. Beyond the Faculty of Engineering’s world-class academic roster,
ESCAP: Tsunamis, earthquakes, unprecedented flooding, heatwaves, cyclones, drought and sand and dust storms. Almost half of the 281 natural disaster events worldwide last year occurred in the Asia-Pacific region, including eight of the ten deadliest. The defining issue of our times – climate change – has further resulted in the intensification and changing geography of disasters, hitting the most vulnerable populations the hardest. Against this backdrop, the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) will hold its second Disaster Resilience Week from 26 to 30 August 2019. Themed “Building disaster resilience through empowerment, inclusion and

The Institute of Disaster Management and Vulnerability Studies (IDMVS), University of Dhaka, and the ISPRS Working Group on Environment and Health welcome you to participate at the International Symposium on Disaster, Environment and Health with the theme “Health at risk in a world of degraded environment and recurrent disasters”. Environment is one of the key elements to support people to live a healthy life. A safe environment can reduce human vulnerabilities to health risk i.e. ensuring air quality, chemical safety, better housing; reducing noise pollution, social inequalities; resource distribution, transportation, water, and sanitation, etc. It is imperative for us to
Environments (ISSN 2076-3298) is an international and cross-disciplinary scholarly, open access journal focusing on the advances, issues and challenges related to environmental systems. Journal’s aim is to encourage scientists and engineers to publish their experimental, theoretical, novel practical results in a variety of areas that range from environmental conservation, environmental technologies, ecosystem services, risk, policy, governance, monitoring and modelling of environmental systems, stakeholder engagement and decision support. There is no restriction on the length of the papers. The full experimental details must be provided with the basic QA so that the results can be reproduced. Electronic files and software regarding
