Methods and Tools for the Assessment and Monitoring of Central Asian Water and Land Resources

The Call for applications for the annual CAWa Summer School "Methods and Tools for the Assessment and Monitoring of Central Asian Water and Land Resources" has been opened. The Summer School is the fifth in a row and will be held from 11 to 22 June 2018 at the German-Kazakh University in Almaty.

Topics

The Summer School will introduce innovative methods and tools for the analysis and monitoring of water and land resources in Central Asia. These methods are of great value in a framework of integrated water and land resources management. The 2-week Summer School will combine theoretical lectures and practical exercises with discussion sessions on the implementation of new methods and tools in managing water and land resources in Central Asia. The programme will include an in-depth introduction to geographical information systems (GIS), an overview on remote sensing applications for land and water resources monitoring, an introduction to climatological data analysis and an introduction to glaciology. For the practical exercises in data analysis, the participants will use open source tools such as QGIS for spatial analysis, and R for statistical analysis. 

Participation

The Summer School addresses dedicated master and PhD students as well as junior university teachers and researchers with interest in geoscientific tools for Integrated Water and Land Resources Management and its practical implementation. Eligible are participants from the following Central Asian countries: Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, and Afghanistan. Participants will be selected based on their application documents (motivation letter, CV).

Funding

The CAWa project provides funding for travel and accommodation expenses for the accepted Central Asian participants. OSCE Programme Office in Astana kindly supports the Remote Sensing related training sessions and VISA support for selected participants.
