Japan-ASEAN Integration Fund Project (Capacity Building of Utilization of Satellite Image for Disaster Management)

17-23 October, Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Asian Disaster Reduction Center (ADRC) conducted the program "Capacity Building of Utilization of Satellite Image for Disaster Management" in Phnom Penh, Cambodia from 17th to 23rd October, in cooperation with Asian Institute of Technology (AIT).
This program consists of one-day seminar and five- day training, both to promote the utilization of space based technology. Especially the theme of this project in Cambodia was the drought. It was held in collaboration with Ministry of Land management, Urban Planning & Construction, Department of Geography in Cambodia.
This is one of the four capacity development programs in ASEAN countries that ADRC has been implementing since 2008, with other three including disaster education promotion, development of Web-based GLIDE-associated disaster database and capacity building of local government officials.
Satellite Images has been utilized to implement emergency activities in Cambodia. However, the experience of the engineers for utilization of the satellite data in these countries is insufficient. The capacity building of engineers in relevant fields is an urgent need.
ADRC will continue to cooperate with Department of Geography and other relevant agencies to further promote the utilization of satellite data in the field of disaster management. ADRC also plans to conduct this program in other ASEAN countries.
