From 4 till 15 November, FutureWater and HKV gave a hands-on training at Yangon Technological University on using the Google Earth Engine cloud computing platform for satellite-derived data analyses for water resources management in Myanmar. The 8-day training was organized under the framework of the Orange Knowledge Tailor-Made Training (TMT) Program, which is funded by NUFFIC, the Dutch organization for internationalization in education. The training in November will be followed up by a final 5-day course from 9-13 December, where participants will finalize individual assignments and present their work during a symposium. Communication experts from the Water Agency have been closely involved in this aspect of the training. The participants, which include policy makers, researchers and the private sector are expected to gain a more advanced skillset of processing and analyzing remote sensing data in Myanmar, which can help enhance the water resources sector in Myanmar.
