ITHACA hosts 3 Ethiopian interns for technical training on GIS and GPS systems

On October 20 ITHACA started a 3-week specialization module on GIS and GPS systems for 3 Ethiopian trainees in the framework of the WATSAM project, coordinated by Hydroaid - Water for Development Management Institute.

WATSAM is a EU-funded development project whose main goal is to contribute to the achievement of sustainable local development, management and governance of the water and sanitation sector of Arba Minch Town, Ethiopia.

The training module provided by ITHACA focuses on the application of an open source GIS software for hydrological modelling and aims at strengthening and integrating the knowledge acquired in the previous weeks through case studies, simulations and exercises that will guide the interns to a practical context for implementing theoretical elements of data collection, analysis and management.
