TELESPAZIO VEGA UK LIMITED (GB)

Summary

“Water Stress and Climate Indices for Africa” (WaSCIA) will deliver high-quality Water Stress and Climate Indices through an easy to use web interface to help the management of drought and water stress in Africa. These are primary components of major climate risks for Africa, including demands on water resources, reduced crop productivity, adverse impacts on livestock, and biome changes. These in turn have major consequences for undernutrition, migration, human conflict and wildlife welfare.

Some of the benefits of an effective drought monitoring solution are:
  • Detection of early onsets of water stress related to drought conditions, its severity and spatial extent
  • Improvement in understanding water-crop productivity in the long term
  • Assisting yield forecasting efforts and food security
