UNDP has approved a U.S. $1.5 million regional program on the integrated application
of Geographical Information System (GIS) and Remote Sensing.
The GIS and remote sensing technologies are used to improve the effectiveness of
management, impact analysis and monitoring of natural resources and the environment,
such as deforestation, land degradation, urbanization, disasters, flooding and other
changes in land use.
The four-year program, developed with the cooperation of ESCAP and the participating
countries, including Cambodia, aims at training planners, decision-makers and end-users
in the monitoring of natural resources and the environment.
Cooperating agencies are the U.N. FAO and the U.N. Department for Development Support
and Management Services.
