Recommended Posts

Event: GIS and Remote Sensing in Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change Course

Venue: Indepth Research Services, Mombasa, Kenya.

Event Date: 12th – 16th March 2018.               





The main purpose of the course is to enhance the capabilities of technical staff involved in Food Security Analysis, climate analysis and agriculture by providing them with an understanding on the use of spatial and Earth Observation (EO) information as a tool to integrate knowledge about climate change, agriculture, and food security in a meaningful and innovative way.
