Abstract

This side-event aims to gather key players and stakeholders for setting out capacity development actions in innovative uses of EO and in-situ technologies for global monitoring of agriculture, agric. changes and its environmental impacts.

Current progress on translation of research into operational monitoring actions, incl. use of capacity development actions for dissemination and rapid uptake, in the framework of SIGMA (Stimulating Innovation for Global Agricultural Monitoring), a global EU support action to GEOGLAM, will form the baseline, together with other int’l efforts.

Public, private sector and project partners from Asia (China), Russia, Africa, Europe, America and UN will present and all interested parties are invited.
