FAO webinar: Joining efforts to turn satellite water data into actionable information for farmers

Apr 22 2021


On 22 April, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) host the webinar “Joining efforts to turn satellite water data into actionable information for farmers”.

Achieving food security in the future while using water resources in a sustainable manner is a major challenge for us and the next generations. Agriculture is a key water user. A careful monitoring of water productivity in agriculture and exploring opportunities to increase it are required.

The FAO portal to monitor Water Productivity through Open access of Remotely sensed derived data (WaPOR) monitors and reports on agriculture water productivity over Africa and the Near East. It provides open access to the water productivity database and its thousands of underlying map layers, it allows for direct data queries, time series analyses, area statistics and data download of key variables associated to water and land productivity assessments.
