Modern day farming relies on weather information in order to plan ahead of extreme weather conditions such as drought and floods.
There are new opportunities to use open data in earth observation such as Landsat and the sentinel data. In addition, there is need to invest in hydromet services to build resilience to climate change and help citizens with accurate weather forecasts.
*RCMRD (@RCMRD_) is an inter-governmental organization established in 1975 (Nairobi, Kenya) and currently has 20 Contracting Member States in the Eastern and Southern Africa Regions. RCMRD’s mission is to promote sustainable development using earth observation and thus SDG’s.
