Project Using Data From Space to Manage Climate Issues on the Ground

The Earth Institute's Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN) and International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI) are providing technical assistance for geospatial product and service development for the new SERVIR hub in West Africa. SERVIR, a joint initiative of NASA and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), is an environmental monitoring program that enhances the role of space-based observations in the management of climate-sensitive issues facing the world today.

SERVIR-West Africa, based in Niamey, Niger, is one of four SERVIR hubs operating in developing regions of the world. This SERVIR center is the newest facility for a growing global community of scientists and decision-makers who are using publicly available data from space to manage climate-sensitive issues, such as food security, water resources, land use change and natural disasters.
