Together, the 17 partners of the AGRICAB project have organized almost 50 training workshops, used data from new European satellites and services, promoted open data sharing according to the principles agreed by the global Group on Earth Observations (GEO), integrated software tools and models, set up satellite ground reception equipment and developed novel web services demonstrating Big Data techniques.
More importantly, the innovative partnerships and collaborations developed through AGRICAB have contributed to:
- better informed agriculture policy making in Senegal, Kenya and Mozambique
- icross-boundary coordination and study of groundwater use for irrigated crops in Tunisia and its neighbours
- state-of-the-art South African research on the mapping of tree cover and volumes and managing fires
- livestock modeling and biomass estimation at global to local scales and developing related insurance products
On 23-24 March 2015, the final meeting of the AGRICAB project was organized by VITO, the project coordinator, in Antwerp, Belgium.
At this meeting, the project partners and invited participants from the European Commission and the GEO Secretariat gathered to
review the achievements of the project and discuss openly on the way forward.
