Летняя Школа CAWa 2015

The Summer School will introduce scientific concepts, methods and tools for the analysis and monitoring of water and land resources in Central Asia. These methods are of great value in a framework of integrated water and land resources management. The 2-week Summer School will combine theoretical lectures and practical exercises with discussion sessions on the implementation of new methods and tools in managing water and land resources in Central Asia. The programme will include an introduction to geographicalinformational systems (GIS), an overview on remote sensing applications for land and water resources monitoring, an introduction to discharge measurement techniques and site visits for practical exercises. The Summer School is organized in the frame of the German Water Initiative for Central Asia (“Berlin Process”), which has been launched by the German Federal Foreign Office in 2008 and is being implemented by DKU (www.dku.kz), the GIZ Transboundary Water Management in Central Asia Programme (www.waterca.org) and the CAWa project. Programme details will be published in March 2015 at the CAWa Project website www.cawaproject.net.
