GIS

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.
