    The training event will introduce the participants to the new open and free processing tools, data and indicators on human settlements of the Global Human Settlement Layer framework, which is supported by the European Commission, DG Joint Research Centre, DG Regional Development and international partnership as the GEO Human Planet Initiative. This new framework produces open methods which combine multiple inputs from remote sensing data and population census data. It provides new global spatial information, evidence-based analytics, and knowledge describing the human presence on the planet. During the event, detailed information on access and use of the dataset will be provided, together with practical showcases on the use of this data for monitoring the implementation of the New Urban Agenda and the post-2015 international frameworks.
