● Identify the problems of knowledge extraction and multi-criterion decisions based on available satellite imagery, digital maps and open sources on the net (with an emphasis on data gathered with virtual globes : Google Earth, ...).
● Observe the practical applications to the sustainable management of renewable natural resources and their political, environmental and economic evaluation (oil & gas and mining investments, water resources, agri-business and environmental problems).
● Examine approaches based on a real oil exploration case in Chad with strong political, economic and environmental issues.
● Presentations of the case by thematic experts (petroleum geologist, cartographer, geographer, journalist, banker, lender, environmental risk expert, NGO representative...) and labs (practical) including hands-on initiation to remote sensing, data integration techniques, resource economic evaluation, environmental accounting and multicriteria mediated decisions.
● Open the minds of participants to the many facets of geospatial data (with a particular focus on earth observation from space) and how to use them in decision processes using the wealth of information available on the web ;
● Develop a practical experience in ways of extracting useful knowledge regarding natural resources management using on-line software collaborative techniques;
● Understand the complexity of resources evaluation and project decisions and the mediation of different views using multicriteria decision analysis, especially in decisions where there is no "easy" solution to balance opinions and conflicts between different socio-economical actors (oil companies, governments, financial institutions, NGOs, local citizens).


● Technical lectures : Principles of economic geointelligence - Open source and geospatial information on the net - Remote sensing - Geographic Information management - Petroleum geology and geophysics - From oil finds to full cycle economics - Environmental and pipeline risks - multicriterion decision analysis
● Case study lectures : Chad and its neighbours - The Exxon-Chad project - The Chinese oil projects - Future development scenario - Environmental risk and local hydrology - The Darfur crisis context
● Case study : Students will have two days of sessions on processing data and solving a practical case in the sustainable development of new oil fields. They will have access to the case history, satellite imagery and a complete geospatial data base. They will have professional software (training versions) for data management and combination and for multi-criterion decision analysis. Students will be organized in project teams, each team providing analysis for one party (western oil company; Chinese oil company; local governments; World Bank; NGOs; ...). At the end during a mediation session, each team will propose its analysis for various development scenarios.

All the teaching material in English is stored on a Web site available ten days before the course.
