What SDGs do our actions relate to?
Provision of crucial information to the vulnerable communities prone to poverty in order to enhance the resilience and furthermore reduce their exposure and vulnerability to climate-related extreme events and environmental shocks and disasters through provision of crucial data on climate change, its effects on agricultural production and RPI.
Thanks to our cooperation with NGO´s we are able to cater for the project teams with crucial information about the local agricultural production, its outlooks and information about the climate that affects the agricultural production. Which enables them to successfully carry out their tasks and plan further into the future.
The crucial point for donors is the identification of the real problems and finding the left way to tackle them. With our data, it will be easier as our thorough analysis can highlight the main deficiencies of current practices. This can lead to further improvements in challenges, areas of focus and total impacts of projects and as agriculture is one of the main sources of income in low-income countries this can lead to significant improvements in local situations.
Through our smart tools, we are able to predict possible disturbances and their impact on food production and supply chains caused by unexpected climate events. It is possible to estimate prospective damage to some of the fields and through the implementation of various measures, these disturbances could be eliminated in the future.
Our services offer insight into ideal cropping periods and extend further understanding of periods that are suitable for growth, therefore enhancing the effectiveness of crop production which becomes interconnected with current weather patterns characterized by our climate reports.
Analysis of the current state and problem identification can lead to higher yields and sales. Our remote sensing activities enable improved strategy planning for large scale farmers for the identification of suitable fields for the future.
Interconnect farmers with input providers (insurance, fertilizers, machinery) so the providers can better understand their activities and can tailor their activities to the farmers, which can lead to access to better seeds, credits, fertilizers and can significantly boost their production and consequently help the farmers escape the vicious cycle of poverty which can lead to improved outputs of subsistence farmers enabling them the monetization of their surpluses further improving their situation.
Through more efficient use of water in the agricultural sector we can create a more sustainable environment as agriculture accounts for the world´s largest water consumption.
This can be done through the prediction of rainy periods that are ideal for growth and reliance on artificial irrigation can decrease. Another very important factor is the proper use of green water, prepare their land-use systems better and furthermore educate them on possible changes, what can be the impacts of green water scarcity.
By improving the knowledge on suitable crops we can decrease the amount of water needed for irrigation and optimise it to prevent excess inefficient irrigation.
Due to the better understanding of the local circumstances and thanks to our risk analysis the banks & insurance companies will be (more/less) likely to invest in the particular community or part of the country that our report and assessment focused on.
Through the help of NGOs, local farmers can improve their production through various advisory programmes, data-based reports and can continuously build and upscale their businesses and orient themselves on the market.
Total resource flows for development, by the recipient and donor countries and type of flow (e.g. official development assistance, foreign direct investment and other flows
Observation of trends in land-use activities and reporting could solve some of the sustainability issues for example soil degradation.
With a better understanding of the environment and better timing farmers could potentially produce more with lower inputs and lower investments than previously if they organise their work well.
With further upscaling of production, farmers could move on from self-subsistence farming to cash crops and reorient their production. Thanks to our reports governments could analyse possible issues and face them more effectively.
If agriculture will be ready for the change nothing can surprise us, improved seeds, better local knowledge, known weather patterns. All of these factors can influence future production and can help us tackle climate change. Better climate resilience in agriculture is our only way.
Through satellite images, NDVI sensors and climate reports, we can determine possible “hotspots” that we need to focus on in the future to prevent the desertification of these places. Other possibilities are appropriate land use management techniques to prevent land degradation.
