From COVID-19 to climate action in Francophone West Africa

Suntrust Incoming Wiring Instructions While the world’s attention was focused on COVID-19, environmental challenges like floods, drought, and deforestation in West Africa did not go away. A partnership formed to help respond to COVID-19 also helped countries develop skills to tackle climate crises. 

1968 Javelin Wiring Diagram The Global Partnership worked with its partners to facilitate GIS training in Guinea, Togo, and Senegal. It also organized a three-phase capacity-building exercise on using the Online Wiring Library Flood and Drought Portal for environment monitoring. 

Geo Tracker Wiring Diagrams Government stakeholders from Guinea, Senegal, and Togo attended the training provided by UNEP. The exercise focused on training trainers so regional institutions could provide technical assistance to their country partners. 

Franklin Blower Motor Wiring The Global Partnership also invited GRID3, which needed data on the portal for ongoing work in Zambia and South Sudan. The process has strengthened collaboration between various institutions by tackling a common SDG-related national goal. It also aims to generate a strong partnership among regional training institutes and knowledge transfer between the three countries and develop knowledge products for public awareness-raising.

Power Supply Schematic Diagram Though the team is still working to validate the data, Sylla says it was helpful to learn how to use the portal, as they can now produce and interpret maps. Once the data is validated, he hopes it will be used in the country’s national reforestation campaign, a presidential initiative.

Odyssey Ups Circuit Diagram In Guinea, the skills gained and data generated are bolstering mapping processes to inform decisions by the Presidential National Reforestation Initiative, though there is still a need to validate the findings by completing a field visit to compare satellite data with the reality on the ground. Before using this portal, they had to rely on other data-producing sectors to monitor deforestation, including farming activities.

Senegal

Indeed, the level of data availability on the SDG indicators identified through this partnership has been significantly improved.”

Building A Low Cost Strain Gage Load Cell Amplifier The Mechtech We learned how to explore and use data on deforestation, drought, and floods in Senegal, which are not often collected at national level. New indicators were discovered in the platform with concepts and methodology through existing literature. This allowed us to better understand the concepts and methods that are used to measure or assess the extent of deforestation, flooding, or drought intensity and to strengthen the analyses on these issues. In addition, we were able to get a new source of data on these different national challenges.”

Togo

Omron Timer Relay Wiring Diagram Commandant Feyssal G. Moumouni, the coordinator of Togo Environmental Information System Improvement Project, says it’s essential to monitor Togo’s environmental changes.

Installing Basic Wiring Outlets Diagrams “Before this training, we used to get data based on connections and friendships, so you have your friend working in one of the departments or he has the data and is working on a project, sometimes they can supply those. But today, this platform is helping us to get the data on our own, at our own time, and at no cost.”

24V 7Ah Lead Acid Battery Charger He hopes it will be used for policies in Togo and that there will be more access to innovations like it in the future. In Togo, the skills gained from the UNEP-DHI training build on ongoing work to develop a national inventory of environmental indicators.
