UTPL to deliver geoinformation to CLIRSEN Ecuador

Ecuador: Technical University of Loja (UTPL) and CLIRSEN (Centre for Integrated Surveys on Natural Resources through Remote Sensing) in Ecuador signed an agreement. Under the agreement, the UTPL will deliver thematic maps and technical reports of studies conducted in the southern region, which covers seven counties in the province of Loja: Catamayo, Gonzanamá, Calvas, Sozoranga, Macara, Celica and Zapotillo, and three of the province of El Oro: Huaquillas, Santa Rosa, and Arenillas.

In addition, as a part of “Generation of geo-information for national territorial management at scale of 1:25,000” project, UTPL provided reports on geo-pedology and geologic hazards, topographic maps, production systems, land cover and use, infrastructure and services, and socio-cultural and economic information, to the CLIRSEN. Eventually, all these reports and information, will be delivered through SENPLADES (National Secretariat for Development Planning) to local governments.
