The UNU Institute for Natural Resources in Africa (UNU-INRA) operating unit in Cameroon is now accepting applications for a training course in digital technology (IT2017). The aim of the training, which will take place at the University of Yaoundé I (Cameroon) from 3–15 July 2017, is to build capacity in digital technology and facilitate analysis and management of natural and environmental resources.
The course will include three modules: basic tools, Geographic Information System (GIS) and remote sensing, and digital map-making and spatial analysis. The course is designed for academic staff and researchers who specialise in any of the following fields: geology, hydro-geology, hydrology, climatology, ecology, agriculture, town planning, topography, forestry, cartography, geography, or other specialities relevant to the analysis and management of natural and environmental resources.
Applications are open until 31 May 2017.
