The "Sentinels-4-African-DRR Training Module Handbook" provides information, video guides and tutorials on the use of Copernicus data for natural disasters. In the form of four modules, you can find guides on drought, floods, wildfires and general information on remote sensing and Copernicus. The materials are suitable both for beginners and intermediate-level users of remote sensing data and GIS.

The materials from the Training Module Handbook can be accessed here 

The Training Module Handbook is developed in the framework of the project “Copernicus User Uptake in Africa via technical support in the field of Disaster Management and Disaster Risk Reduction” (Short forms: Sentinels-4-African-DRR; S4ADRR). The project is funded through the Framework Partnership Agreement on Copernicus User Uptake (FPCUP Action 2019-2-48) and performed by the German Space Agency at DLR, with the support of the Center for Remote Sensing of Land Surfaces (ZFL) of the University of Bonn, Germany. The project team collaborates closely with the United Nations Platform for Space-Based Information for Disaster Management and Emergency Response (UN-SPIDER), a program of the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA). Further, there is close collaboration with the teams responsible for the Global Flood Awareness System (GloFAS) and the Global Drought Observatory (GDO) of the Copernicus Emergency Management Service (EMS).
