Please join us at the upcoming set of regional exchanges of the Earth Observation Training, Education, and Capacity Development Network (EOTEC DevNet) on September 21, 2021.
Building on the inaugural regional meetings in June that focused on capacity development around floods, these regional EOTEC DevNet meetings will expand the conversation to how experts in each region are working to strengthen capacity building around drought at regional levels. Each regional meeting will discuss the tools, capacity development resources, and gaps and needs related to floods and drought for their region with the goal of greater coordination, communication, and opportunities for collaboration.
· Learn about EOTEC DevNet’s goals and organization, including the Regional Communities of Practice
· Discuss and share data, tools, and training resources related to drought
· Discuss regional gaps and needs for drought monitoring and management
· Discuss capacity development needs for the region
· Learn how your organization can stay engaged with the network
We welcome your contributions to and feedback on EOTEC DevNet’s draft Droughts Tracker prior to the meeting, as well! Please feel free to add to each tab of the tracker on behalf of your organization and distribute to others who may be able to contribute.
