By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Government of Belize is hosting three four-day training courses on Climate Data, Geospatial Technologies, Coastal and Fisheries Data Management Training.

The first of the three courses started today under the guidance of the Ministry of Blue Economy and Civil Aviation (MBECA) in collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and Belize’s National Designated Authority to the Green Climate Fund (GCF).

The training which is being facilitated under the GCF readiness project entitled ‘Enhancing adaptation planning and increasing climate resilience in the coastal zone and fisheries sector of Belize’ seeks to improve the tracking of ecosystem health and forecasting future climate change impacts.

“The sessions will also include the use of innovative technologies such as remote sensing and will be guided by modules designed from a pre-evaluation knowledge survey and training manual,” the Government of Belize Press Office said in a press release.

“The main thematic areas include Geographic Information System (GIS), Remote Sensing, Climate Data Analysis and Visualization, and Coastal and Fisheries Data Management.”

The statement said the training is split in three modules: Introductory, Intermediate and Intermediate Advance. They will be held on April 25-28, May 9-12, and May 23-26, 2023.

The participants from the Coastal Zone Management Authority and Institute, the Belize Fisheries Department, the National Meteorological Service of Belize, the Blue Economy Unit under the Ministry of Blue Economy and Civil Aviation, and the University of Belize will be able to track ecosystem health and forecast future climate change impacts using innovative technologies.
