Trainings / Workshops | Jeff N. Hunt | 31 May 2022 | Print
 
NAMRIA was once again tapped by the Local Government Academy (LGA) of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) to conduct a training on basic Geographic Information System (GIS). The virtual training was held on 23-27 May 2022, and was participated in by 41 personnel from DILG Region IV-B (MIMAROPA). The holding of the training emanated from the formal request made by LGA Executive Director Thelma T. Vecina, CESO IV to NAMRIA Administrator, Usec. Peter N. Tiangco, PhD. There is a three (3)-year partnership agreement between the two agencies. The agreement is for enhancing the capabilities of local government units on GIS. The focus is on GIS as a tool for local development planning, disaster preparedness, and climate change mitigation and adaptation programs.

The training, which was divided into two groups, was organized using both synchronous and asynchronous sessions. The specific modules on map appreciation and introduction to GIS, GIS software functionalities, data management, and map composition were complemented by tailored discussions and case examples on risk-based development planning in local governments.
