  1. GEO Capacity BuildingWorkshop on the Role of Remote Sensing in Disaster Management 10 – 12 December 2007, Geneva.Imraan SaloojeeGEO

  2. Capacity and Capacity Building • Capacity: What is there? What are the gaps?..............Resources • Capacity Building: How does capacity change?...........Process • Support to CB: How can such change processes be supported by outsiders (know how, technology, funding)? Gaps in EO Capacity≠ Gaps in EO Capacity Building GEO CBC OTHER GEO COMMITTEES GEO & GEOSS GEO Secretariat

  3. “The path to sustainability for GEO requires a renewed commitment for capacity building and understanding of user needs…” GEO Report on progress 2007 GEO Secretariat

  4. An integrated approach to building capacity. Infrastructure CB:HW, SW and other technology required to develop, access and use EO… • Individuals (Human) CB:education and training of individuals to be aware of, access, use and develop EO… • Institutional CB:building policies, programs & organizational structures in governments and organizations to enhance the understanding of the value of EO… …data and products.

  6. Guiding Principles for GEO Capacity Building • DO NOT REINVENT THE WHEEL ! Build on existing efforts and best practices; • 1ST THE USER, THEN THE USER AND FINALLY THE USER ! Focus on user needs • DO IT TOGETHER ! Foster collaboration and partnership • HAVE A HOLISTIC VIEW ! E2E, I³, in all SBA, at the global, regional and local levels • DO IT TO LAST! Enhance the sustainability EO GEO Secretariat

  7. Outreach Facilitate networking Education and training materials, open courseware and e-learning materials across all SBA’s Open source software and training guides (CB0701e) Registries of good practice Registries of Needs Registries of “Donors” (CB0701a) Links to other portals CB WEB PORTAL GEO Secretariat

  10. A summary of survey findings: Gaps in CB activities • Limited awareness and access to CB resources; • Duplication of EO CB efforts • Need for criteria and standards for EO CB; • Lack of e-science infrastructure for EO education and training; • Gaps between EO research and operational application; • Connectivity inefficiency between providers and users of EO systems; • Need for cooperation within and between developed and developing countries and regions; • Lack of awareness about the value of EO among decision makers; Panamanian President Martin Torrijos (left) consults with meteorologist Annette Quinn and Director of CATHALAC Emilio Sempres at the SERVIR facility in the City of Knowledge, Panama.

  11. TASK: Knowledge Sharing for Improved Disaster Management and Emergency Response (UN-SPIDER, CEOS) Output & Deliverables (1) Establish a network of experts to ensure knowledge sharing for improved disaster management, (2) Identify ongoing research and technical development and facilitate exchange of expertise. (3) Establish a Portal GEO Secretariat

  12. UN-SPIDER – Capacity Building Implementation Plan: Activity 3.3 - Support to Capacity Building Activities will include the compilationof information relevant to capacity building opportunities and the facilitation of capacity building, in particular of practitioners and end-users. This activity will contributeto the development of curricula, working with the regional centres for space science and technology education, affiliated to the United Nations, as well as other national and regional centres of excellence to train and educate end users and strengthen national institutions.

  13. Seville Roadmap GEO resource-mobilization roadmap aims to position GEO as: • an efficient coordinator of resource mobilization activities, and • an honest broker serving users, produces and potential resource providers. GEO Secretariat

  14. Seville Roadmap KEY OBJECTIVES • Sensitize donors to the value of EO and the benefits that building greater capacity for producing and using EO can bring to a variety of users. • Strengthen links between the user and donor communities • Coordinate resource mobilization for building the capacity of individuals, institutions and infrastructure (I3). • Identify likely donors for each SBA and geographic region.
