NASA and USAID Bring Earth-Observation Benefits to Africa

Posted by goopsgoops 2071 days ago in Miscellaneous from http://www.european-waternews.com

NASA, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and their international partners cut the ribbon Friday 21 November 2008 in Nairobi, Kenya, for SERVIR-Africa. The SERVIR-Africa system integrates the satellite resources of the United States and other countries into a Web-based Earth information system. This effort puts previously inaccessible information into the hands of local scientists, government leaders and communities to help address concerns related to natural disasters, disease outbreaks, biodiversity and climate change.
