Hanoi, Viet Nam 3 to 7 August 2015

Under CEP’s ‘Building Capacity for Land Use Change Modeling activity,’ a training of trainers program on land use change modeling will be delivered in each of the six GMS countries during August–October.

Targeting participants from government and academic institutions, the aim is to introduce the recently enhanced CLUMondo land use modeling software as a practical tool for informing land use decision making in the subregion.

The four-day training will begin with lectures on the drivers and impacts of land use changes and the role of land use modeling in policy and development. This will be followed by intensive training on how to apply the CLUMondo software. A fifth day will be targeted at high-level planners to build their understanding of how land use modeling can benefit policy making and to identify potential planning processes for applying CLUMondo.

Training dates and locations are as follows:

  • Hanoi, Viet Nam – 3-7 August
  • Bangkok, Thailand – 10-14 August
  • Phnom Penh, Cambodia – 17-21 August
