Remotely Sensed Information for Crop Monitoring and Food Security - Techniques and methods for arid and semi-arid areas
This course describes how the information derived from remote sensing is obtained and best used for crop monitoring in a food security context. It outlines what the exact meanings of the products are and shows how their early warning and food availability information contents can be combined efficiently with other sources (e.g. households surveys, market analyses, nutritional surveys, etc.).
This course has been developed as part of the EU-FAO Programme on "Improved Global Governance for Hunger Reduction" and the technical contents have been provided by the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission.
