Space for Food Security: On the Right Track

Geodata for Agriculture and Water Conference 2022

As a consequence of climate change, the food producers of our planet face the extraordinary challenge of feeding 9 billion people by the year 2050. Innovative solutions can help to improve this situation by empowering the most important actors in the food production chain: smallholder farmers. Providing the right information at the right time to food producers can help to improve and increase food production in a sustainable manner thus ensuring food security on a global scale.

Over the past 8 years the Geodata for Agriculture and Water (G4AW) programme provided 25 public private partnerships in 15 countries support to develop satellite-based information services for smallholder food producers.

At the G4AW October conference, organized in collaboration with Rabo Foundation, we invite you to join us in reflecting on the lessons learned to explore future trends in Space for Food Security and Inclusive Finance.
