Project II

Decision Support Tool for Rural Farmers:

Agriculture contributes about 50% of the labour force and 42% to the GDP in the country. Over the years, the impact of climate change (e.g. floods and drought) has robbed farmers of their farm produce leading to increased risk of food insecurity.

The question is how can rural farmers be supported to understand variability of climate conditions? To this challenge, this project is working to establishing a decision support system that would continuously inform rural farmers on climate variability with the aid latest earth observation techniques.
