Selected by NASA to help manage water for Indochina, Assistant Civil and Environmental Engineering Professor Hyongki Lee is now teaching them how to do it without him.
Lee is the principal investigator (PI) on a project called “Building Lasting Capacity for Water Management in Vulnerable Deltas of Indochina.” It’s one of 16 selected by the NASA SERVIR program for funding. The goal of the SERVIR (to serve in Spanish) program is to help developing countries use information provided by Earth-observing satellites to manage natural resources.
Lee’s goal is have his tools implemented by stakeholder agencies for their decision-making, and have them rely on themselves after the project ends.
The three-day training session in Hanoi, Vietnam took place Oct. 5-7. Read all about it on the SERVIR GLOBAL website here.
