Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) have improved prospects for solving technical problems through the use of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) for hazard mapping and modeling the use of web-based data sources to facilitate research on disaster management and the use of searchable databases for hazard information. Not all Caribbean countries however have been able to fully utilize these opportunities.
This course aims to impart practical skills on how to use GIS to overcome the major challenges faced in all phases of disaster management.
