GLCN-ASIACOVER land cover mapping training workshop
Last updated 11 September 2003

1-6 December 2003

Venue and Date

The workshop will be held at the Princess Sirindhorn International Training Centre, Bangkok, Thailand, from the 1-6 December 2003.

Introduction

FAO/UNEP have recently launched the Global Land Cover Network (GLCN) with the objective to improve the availability of global information on land cover and its dynamics, harmonizing land cover mapping and monitoring at national, regional and global levels. GLCN will generate essential data needed for sustainable development, environmental protection, food security and humanitarian programmes of the United Nations, and of other international and national institutions.

The GLCN initiative will bring together national technical staff in the field of Remote Sensing/GIS, Agriculture, Forestry, Pasture/Rangeland, Environment, and Food Security to develop a network at the regional and global scale to adopt the standardization of land cover measurement methods and develop regional and global land cover products. The collaboration will involve not only data providers but also data users and policy-makers.
