SERVIR-Africa

SERVIR integrates satellite observations and predictive models with other geographic information (sensor and field-based) to monitor and forecast ecological changes and respond to natural disasters. In 2008, NASA and CATHALAC partnered with the Regional Center for Mapping of Resources for Development (RCMRD) based in Nairobi, Kenya, and together they began setting up SERVIR's Africa hub. The SERVIR-Africa project builds upon RCMRD’s existing strengths and augments RCMRD’s data management and training capability. Efforts complement RCMRD’s core mission and provide a springboard for the development of applications customized for RCMRD’s 18 member states.

Current Conditions

The evolving SERVIR regional visualization and monitoring platform has been established in Africa to improve scientific knowledge and decision-making in a range of application areas (e.g., biodiversity conservation, disaster management, agricultural development, climate change adaptation, etc.).

Partner Countries: Botswana, Burundi, Comoros, Ethiopia, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mauritius, Namibia, Rwanda, Seychelles, Somalia, South Africa, Sudan, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia
