The SENSING project aims to focus efforts on scientific developments capable of solving emerging global problems in the field of environmental change, sustainable development, health and food security. Teachers and students will focus on techniques of environmental monitoring and geoprocessing, development of technologies in image processing and satellite data and services. In this project, we aim to train researchers and professionals, with recognized competence and leadership to act on national issues aligned with global initiatives.
Thus, the project will subsidize the formation of scientific leaders with competence to deal with actions and create solutions on international issues such as the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change ( IPCC, the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), the Convention on Floodplains of International Importance (RAMSAR convention), the Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR ). The competent action of the leaderships formed with subsidies of this project, through the development of leading researches, will strategically assist Brazil to fulfill its international goals established within the National Policy on Climate Change (PNMC - law 12,187). The research will have a direct impact on the national strategy for REDD + in Brazil (ENREDD +), which formalizes actions for prevention and control of deforestation and degradation before Brazilian society and the signatory countries of the framework convention of the united nations on climate change forest promotion, and promotion of sustainable development. The success of this project requires not only the understanding of complex environmental systems, but also the domain of satellite image processing, the knowledge and development of sensors for the monitoring of specific targets and the ability to model such systems.
The objectives include: 1) Promoting state-of-the-art research and technological development in earth observation 2) Providing excellence in higher education and technical training in the field of satellite applications 3) Communicating scientific results to society 4) Promoting the state of art of scientific knowledge in the areas of knowledge aligned with the demands of Brazilian and international society.
