"Learn to view and interpret remote sensing data associated with SDG 15 with a QGIS tool developed by Conservation International called Trends.Earth."
Learn about the SDG framework and global agency coordination and become familiar with SDG 15 - "to combat desertification, drought, and floods, and strive to achieve a land degradation neutral world", particularly Target 15.3, and Indicator 15.3.1. Through this session, understand the concept of net primary productivity and how to monitor that metric with remote sensing data. Finally, learn to view and interpret remote sensing data associated with SDG 15 with a QGIS tool developed by Conservation International called Trends.Earth.
This training was created by NASA's Applied Remote Sensing Training Program (ARSET), in partnership with Conservation International, United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD), and UN-Habitat. ARSET is a part of NASA's Applied Science's Capacity Building Program. Learn more about ARSET HERE.
