EO AFRICA F2F Training #6: Vegetation and Drought Monitoring from Space
January 23 - January 27
The 6th F2F course of the EO AFRICA R&D Facility will take place in Rabat, Morocco at CRASTE-LF (African Regional Centre for Space Science and Technology in French Language).
This course will provide participants with the necessary theoretical and practical knowledge on vegetation and drought monitoring based on satellite EO data.
It will focus both on regional assessments based on low spatial resolution data and local impacts of droughts on crop production using crop growth simulation models.
The training includes face-to-face lecturing and sets of short videos combined with reading material to provide the theoretical background. Through several hands-on case studies, the participants will get ample opportunity to put the theory into practice and discover how satellite EO data can help tackle the current challenges in food production and food security.
Deadline for applications: January 6, 2023
