Geospatial World Forum has become the most talked about geospatial event, best-known for its futuristic themes, engaging content, and top-level attendees. It will take place in Amsterdam (The Netherlands) from 2 to 4 April 2019. On 3 April the ESA's EO4SD-Agriculture and Rural Development Cluster will organise the Earth Observation for Sustainable Agricultural Development workshop from 11.00 to 13.30.

This workshop aims to inform and build awareness across the agricultural and rural development sector on the utility, benefits, and potential constraints of using satellite Earth Observation (EO) information services. A series of short presentations around the themes of agricultural productivity, agricultural water management, and sustainable land management will showcase how EO is used in the design, implementation, and evaluation of projects funded by various Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs). Speakers will introduce key concepts, challenges and opportunities of EO for agricultural and rural development and showcase how EO is used for enhanced agricultural productivity, improved agricultural water management, and fostering sustainable land management in development project design, operational monitoring and impact assessment.
