This training is designed to address the basic skills in GIS and RS with examples that relate to disaster management. Through hands-on examples the participants acquire the skills and they learn about DM at the same time. A selected sub-group continues after the training to rework the training materials into training materials they can use in the BSc curricula.  A two-week training in Phnom Penh, which is the second activity of five parts under the collaborating project, for RUPP staffs, the training will focus on hands-on exercises related to GIS and RS for Disaster Management (ITC focuses on GIS, GISTDA focuses on RS).
