Calling government officials from Indonesian CityNet member cities

CityNet is pleased to invite Indonesian member cities to participate in the Workshop on Information and Communication Technology (ICT) for Disaster Risk Management (DRM) for Indonesian Cities. The program will be held on 7-11 June 2021. The program will be held in English, with Bahasa interpretation provided.

Jointly organized with UNESCAP/APCICT, this workshop will equip local government officials with the essential knowledge and skills to understand the practical use of ICT in disaster response and relief to facilitate better communication, response, and efficiency, contributing to zero casualties. Drawing on the experiences of governments, experts, and international agencies, the workshop will also help Indonesian local governments develop and improve on their ICT for DRM approaches and policies.

We hope to see government officials involved in ICT, planning, and DRM engaging in this workshop. By encouraging horizontal cooperation and coordination, governments can improve their efficiency in responding to disasters.

Around the world, cities are facing #environmentalhazards like extreme #heat, #landslides, #pollution, and #flooding. To enhance #resilience to #climatechange impacts, cities must monitor and address these hazards. Earth observations can help cities understand and enhance urban resilience and make better decisions for planning, urban #greening, monitoring, and more.

This 3-part, introductory webinar series will provide an overview of the Earth Observations Toolkit for Sustainable Cities and Human Settlements, an online knowledge resource that shares ready-to-use Earth observation data sets and tools. These resources can be applied in policy areas that are important to resilient and sustainable cities.
