 Agriculture, Water and Climate Change in Africa! (Feb 2014)

To illustrate on-going partnerships between European and African scientists and stakeholders, the European Commission and a number of its Africa-related FP7 projects jointly developed a set of documentaries, produced by the non-profit Africa Turns Green. This one includes a Kenyan example of AGRICAB's efforts to strengthen capacities in the use of Earth Observation for agriculture management. It also nicely captures the added value of remote sensing as a technology for Africa's sustainable development.
