The Centre for Sustainable Dryland Ecosystems and Societies (CSDES) held a successful two day Geo-Information Systems (GIS) training workshop at the College of Agriculture and Veterinary Sciences (CAVS), Department of Land Resource management & Agricultural Technology (LARMAT) from 19th to 20th June 2012. This is part of its commitment to build the capacity of University of Nairobi students to address the problems of dryland ecosystems and societies in Kenya.

The objectives of the course were:  to create understanding of GIS data structures; introduce the students to the ArcGIS environment; to train the students on how to display, query and edit GIS data. The students were also trained on how to explore geospatial relationships and on how to produce maps.


The training was conducted by DR. Laban MacOpiyo and Fikir Alemayehu. A total of 12 PhD students benefitted from the training.

A section of the PhD students keenly follow the training session
