The principal objective of this training is to enhance the capacity of the GLOBE Trainers through data literacy for GLOBE Protocols.

34 GLOBE Trainers from Asia Pacific Regional Countries will be selected. The selection of trainers will be done by CCs based on the criteria suggested by the GIO & RCO for the GLOBE Program as well as the interest of the participants.

It is necessary to educate the regional GLOBE community about data literacy seeing the advent of data science & how it's going to be crucial that the community understands the importance of data that they collect which helps scientists and researchers in understanding the environment better.
