Workshop in Kathmandu on space technology for sustainable development in mountain areas

It is the first in a new series of activities dedicated to sustainable development in mountain areas. The Workshop lasts from 15 to 19 November 2004, and is being hosted by the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD).

Remotely-sensed data provides unique views of the Earth for many studies that require synoptic or periodic observations such as inventory, surveying and monitoring in agriculture, geology, hydrology, mineralogy and the environment. Remote sensing is integrated with other disciplines and technologies, including cartography and global positioning systems.

The primary objective of the workshop, being inaugurated by the Minister for Population and Environment of Nepal, is to discuss the potential uses of remote sensing and other space-related technologies in facilitating sustainable development in mountain areas.

The workshop programme includes case studies in the application of remote sensing to mountain areas. A number of interactive presentations will be delivered directly via satellite from Austria. A special event has been organised on ESA's Eduspace programme for educators from universities in Nepal.

Around 150 scientists, educators, decision-makers and engineers are expected to participate, from the following countries and international organisations: Afghanistan, Armenia, Austria, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, China, Denmark, India, Iran, Kyrgyzstan, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, Thailand, Viet Nam, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR), ICIMOD, ESA and OOSA.

The United Nations Programme on Space Applications is implemented by the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (OOSA) and works to improve the use of space science and technology for the economic and social development of all nations, in particular developing countries.
