Justification of the project

  • Need of improved Food Security systems
    Due to repeated and prolonged droughts, there is a need for more efficient Food Security systems and Environmental Monitoring in Eastern Africa.


  • Need of up to date and reliable information
    The existing source of information at the national and sub-regional levels, in Eastern Africa, are not sufficient to provide accurate, reliable and timely data to early warning and environmental information systems.


  • Need of new Remote Sensing equipment and activities
    The sub-region needs a strengthening of the Remote Sensing & GIS equipment and activities, to provide up to date and reliable information to Food Security and Environmental Information sectors
