Unlocking the potential of Earth Observation to address Africa’s critical challenges

In collaboration with Digital Earth Africa

Earth observation data can be essential for harnessing Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies for the public good. Digital Earth Africa shows how such innovations can enable widespread socio-economic development throughout the African continent, and how continental scale data infrastructure can democratize the capacity to process and analyse satellite data. This allows for the informed decision-making needed to tackle issues such as water scarcity, land use and food security.
