Training and Internships

SEKALA provides training and internships on Geographic Information Systems (GIS), satellite image processing, remote sensing, spatial planning, REDD+ and community mapping to various stakeholders, including government officials, Non Government Organisations (NGOs), private enterprise and local communities.

Some of these training workshops aim to initiate discussion among civil society and local forestry offices about data availability, data inconsistencies, information sharing mechanisms, standards, metadata and analysis.

These training workshops also seek to increase awareness about the need for transparency and to mobilize a constituency committed to sharing forest data and information. Other training workshops are more technical in nature and aim to increase capacity to improve data and to do GIS analysis.

  • Geographic Information Systems
  • Satellite Image Processing
  • Community mapping processes
  • Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD)
  • High Conservation Value Forests
