Objectives of the workshop

To conduct a Regional training on the use of GIS and Remote Sensing Technology for forest monitoring and management. To introduce the GIS tools that can be used in forest management and monitoring which has become more complex because of the fact that there are many multiple objectives to fulfil as well as multiple and demanding criteria and constraint to address. This makes the spatial technologies well suited for applications to cope with forest management and monitoring issues. The GIS technology is a very valuable tool not only in decision-making but also in forest planning and forest management.
