III GEF-IAP Food Security Workshop

Event date: 
12 March 2019 to 15 March 2019

The third workshop of the Integrated Approach Programme on Fostering Sustainability and Resilience for Food Security in sub-Saharan Africa (III GEF-IAP-FS Workshop) will take place in Ghana.

This knowledge enhancement event aims to inform and build awareness among IAP FS workshop participants of the utility, benefits and potential constraints of using Earth Observation information services in IAP FS operations and analytical products in the agriculture and wider sustainable development sectors. Based on practical examples from Burkina Faso, Ethiopia and Niger, the focus of this day will be put on harnessing Earth Observation information services as demonstrated under the ESA Earth Observation for Sustainable Development (EO4SD) initiative to support:

  • Monitoring of agricultural production and productivity
  • Food security and agriculture risk management
  • Irrigation system development and management
  • Environmental impact assessments
  • M&E of sustainable land management
