What I expect to gain from the Philippines P3DM / PGIS process
My overall expectations for attending the Philippines PGIS are vast. However, I shall limit the list to the following:
- Gain practical knowledge and skills on how to facilitate and organise stakeholders into a participatory process and to know when and how to hand over the spatial information generating process to the concerned groups.
- Acquire practical skills on how to select and procure appropriate inputs for the manufacture of a physical 3D map.
- Gain hands on experience in the process of capturing and digitizing data displayed on the model and their processing for desired outcomes.
- Discover appropriate approaches to assess, manage spatial data and strategise on how to use them to help concerned communities achieve their objectives
- Learn how to present the output to external agencies for various purposes including, e.g. policy making, disaster recovery, land use planning, land-based conflict management, climate change adaptation.
- Acquire facilitator skills – maintain a collaborative, neutral presence (not too dictatorial) when populating spatial information on the model map
- Align, impact and measure the outcome of a P3DM on the intended scenario.
- Improve and advance my capacity on the use of Web 2.0 and Social Media.
During my participation, I believe that my theoretical knowledge on the subject will be enriched by practical experience and best serve an eventual replication of the P3DM process in Solomon Islands.
Follow the learning journey of Wilfred Don Dorovoqa, a member of the Padezaka tribe in Solomon Islands.
Supported by CTA, Wilfred Don has embarked in a journey which will bring him from Sasamuqa Village to Estancia in the Philippines where he will participate in a participatory mapping exercise. Green Forum – Western Visayas, Inc. (GF-WV) in partnership with Aksyon Klima Pilipinas and the Rebuild Project is facilitating the implementation of a Participatory 3-Dimensional Modelling (P3DM) process in an area which was severely affected by Supertyphoon Haiyan in November 2013. GF-WV is using the P3DM as an ICT tool for allowing communities to analyse their vulnerabilities and assist them in planning for reconstruction.
