Mother Earth: Contribution of Geospatial Science and Technology

MAIN ORGANIZER(S): Stuttgart University of Applied Sciences

Type: Meeting or Conference Date: 12 - 16 Nov 2018 Location: Namibia (Windhoek) Venue: Namibia University of Science and Technology

Disaster risk information is spatial in nature and geoinformatics related sciences, such as remote sensing, GIS and photogrammetry, play a significant role in both providing data and managing disasters and hazards in nature. Rapid population growth and urbanization expansion, combined with extreme climatic events, are causing a rapid increase in vulnerability of peoples exposed to hazardous events. Natural disasters impose severe damage on almost the entire spectrum of social and natural habitats, ranging from housing and shelter, water, food, health, sanitation, and waste management to information and communication networks, the supply of power and energy, and transportation infrastructure.

In order to contribute to this goal, our 9th AGSE conference/summer school will focus on "Crisis and Disaster Management", i.e., the contribution of geoinformatics, remote sensing, and planning for preparation, response, recovery, and mitigation of disasters. In addition we will try to cover aspects of a related field: the contribution of geospatial science and technology to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
