Day One: 17 Aug 2021 Theme: Science Policy Linkage to Resilience Measurement

Shocks and stresses from climate related disasters, conflicts or competition of resources such as pasture or water can significantly disrupt community growth and development, thus negating the resilience of a society. Conducive policy environments help a great deal to help communities and entire governments better prepare and deal with the effects of such shocks and stresses, without getting significant worse off after recovering from such events. Governments, non-government institutions and private sector players have over the years made strides in implementing projects that are aimed at improving the resilience of communities to better respond to vulnerabilities from impacts of climate change and natural disasters. However, the seamless linkage between research, innovation and Earth science outputs and appropriate policies that guide various actors towards sustaining the gains in resilience building is key, but often lacking.

For instance, how are we empowering development practitioners with state-of-the-art tools and information to better equip communities to bounce back from shocks and stresses such as droughts, floods, landslides, wildfires, without being significantly worse off than when the disaster struck? Presenters in this session are encouraged to submit abstracts describing tools and policies that have been adopted at micro and macro levels (village to national levels to improve or change the way communities respond or prepare against such shocks and stresses. Abstracts leading to presentations with clear examples of case studies of operational policies, or ones that are making a difference, particularly in highly vulnerable communities (e.g. ASALS or flood zones) are highly encouraged.


Day Two: 18 Aug 2021 Theme: Earth Observation (EO) and GIS Tools in Climate Adaptation and Mitigation

The last decade has seen significant improvements in EO data sharing and developments in GIS platforms, improved capabilities for data access and analysis, and visualization, with tremendous impact on informed decision making. EO information is plays a key role in supporting resilience building, as well as monitoring gains in climate change adaptation and mitigation. Presenters are invited to submit abstracts which demonstrate the use of Earth Observation and GIS technologies in various sectors, and how their work is, or will make a difference in addressing development challenges.

Example presentations in this session would be applications of EO and GIS in agriculture, conservation, climate change studies, ecosystem management, land use land cover change monitoring, species distribution modelling, air quality monitoring, water quality studies, biodiversity conservation, vulnerability mapping and disaster risk reduction, etc. Studies looking at application of machine learning and artificial intelligence, drones (unmanned aerial vehicles) and other related technologies in development making are encouraged.

Day Three: 19 Aug 2021 Theme: Innovations in resilience building, climate mitigation and adaptation strategies

With continuous growth in technology, open-source software and data access platforms, various technologies which leverage on EO data, spatial analysis, systems thinking, the internet of things, etc., have emerged to help communities around the world deal with the impacts of climate change. From remotely operated networks of sensors which warn villages of flooding, sensors monitoring water level uses in underground water sources, to computer apps monitoring air quality, traffic congestion, agricultural productivity and market performance, the innovations are increasingly making a difference in humanity.

Most recently, young innovators have designed applications to help their communities manage health crisis such as COVID-19. This session invites abstracts describing innovations which are making a difference in the way communities access, handle and utilize information to help them adapt to or mitigate against the impacts of climate change.
