This project aims to improve regional agriculture monitoring and assessments leveraging Earth observations data.
This project will focus on Senegal and Mali with potential to expand to Burkina Faso. Working with The SERVIR West Africa Hub, the project team will improve regional agriculture monitoring and assessments leveraging Earth observations data. Building on the lessons learned in E&SA, specifically, the project will aim to launch a regional crop monitor while improving critical practical information on crop conditions, yield forecasts, and cropland /crop-type maps that feed into crop monitoring. We will strengthen existing early warning systems through capacity development training and systems’ adaptation. The project will leverage Lutheran World Relief’s (LWR) current resilience-focused programming in the region and enable ground data collection to fill critical gaps identified in a previous collaboration in Mali.
