Anil Agarwal Environment Training Institute (AAETI), Campus, Nimli, Rajasthan
Centre for Science and Environment announces its training on statistical and geospatial data in knowledge partnership with CODATA, the Committee on Data for Science and Technology of the International Council for Science.
Statistical and Geospatial data are vital for evidence-based decision making and communication for organisations in both the public and private sectors.
But we live in a time of an explosion of such data and information in every field. Finding, analysing and communicating this data and information demands special skills. Processed and communicated well, this data becomes an excellent outreach tool, capable of making far-reaching impacts and gaining leverage.
But the combined power of these two rich data systems is yet to be explored completely and leveraged to their full potential for evidence-based decision making and communication in the digital age.
Strengthening capacity to produce and disseminate relevant, timely and accurate statistical and geospatial -- national, regional and global data - is an urgent need of the hour.
Hence the Anil Agarwal Environment Training Institute, a Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) initiative, invites applications and nominations for its four-day residential training programme on “Application and Communication of Statistical and Geo-Spatial data for Sustainable Development, Pollution Control and Urban Planning in the Changing Climate.”
