Applications are invited for the SERVIR-HKH Initiative Empowering Women in Geospatial Information Technology Program 2023. The SERVIR-HKH Initiative is organising this training to build the capacity of women from across the Hindu Kush Himalayan (HKH) region in geospatial information technology (GIT).

They will use a blended learning approach for this training for women in GIT (WoGIT), incorporating presentations and guided practical exercises. In the context of emerging environmental issues, they will cover a wide range of topics that can complement solutions and decision making, including the fundamental principles of geographic information systems (GIS), basic remote sensing (RS) concepts, GIS data use and visualisation, geoprocessing and analytical query, RS image interpretation and mapping, and map production using open-source tools. The training will also provide an overview of SERVIR-HKH’s services in land cover analysis and disaster preparedness.

They aim to train young women from the HKH region on the use of Earth observation (EO) data and GIT for different applications. By equipping these women with the necessary skills and knowledge, we aim to bridge the gender gap in the EO/GIT sector and foster women’s leadership in this field across HKH countries. Upon completing the training, the participants will better understand the concepts and applications of EO and GIT linked to SERVIR-HKH services, enabling them to use the knowledge gained professionally.

Participants will receive a certificate of completion only upon satisfactory completion of the following requirements:

  • Attendance: Attend at least 80% of the training sessions.
  • Assessment forms: Complete the pre- and post-training assessment forms, which will be provided during the training.
  • Quiz: Pass the training-related quiz with a minimum score of 50% within 10 days of completing the training.
