Environmental Management in the Middle-East: Spatial Approaches

Description

The Middle East suffers serious environmental issues and hence needs modernization and capacity building on environmental management. This project aims for sustainable capacity building on using spatial data infrastructures (SDI) and related technologies for environmental management in the Middle East. EU and non-EU universities as well as local stakeholders in the Middle East will collaborate as a consortium to perform the project. An existing master program in environmental management using GIS (GeoNetC) will be implemented in Yemen as well as more universities in Iran. Three innovative and blended courses on applications of spatial data infrastructure and related technologies for environmental management will be developed to be taught in HEIs. The courses will be developed based on the needs of universities, stakeholders and the region in general. E-learning systems will be setup in partner universities to offer the courses to students and stakeholders on a distance and blended mode, besides in campus training. It is in line with meeting the priority of the region on using ICT-based and flexible education in the Middle East. A Geoportal for environmental management (emGeo) will be developed and implemented to facilitate spatial data management, sharing and analysis in the region to support a better collaborative knowledge-based environmental management. Training of trainers will be conducted for partner universities on how to teach and update the courses and use emGeo. Several workshops with the participation of HEIs, stakeholders, associate partners and students will be held to disseminate the outcomes/outputs of the project. Culturing the use of SDI and related technologies for environmental management and enterprise-university cooperation will be motivated and addressed during the project, especially in the workshops.
