Training on Quantum Geographical Information System (QGIS) for the Kenya-Somalia

Export citation

Based on the complexity and expensiveness of other GIS software such as arc GIS, the facilitators decided to focus on Quantum GIS which is freely available to users. The training on Quantum GIS was further based on agreements reached upon by the Land Use Planning Committee of the IGAD-BMP. This committee tasked ICRAF to lead in the organization of the course but supported by the National Museums of Kenya and CORDIO. The aim of the course was to build capacity of project partners so that those trained can add value to the biodiversity management of the Laga Badana and Tana Kipini transboundary sites.
