Remote sensing, information and communication technologies

A Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) action framework, aims to provide workable solutions, available for stakeholders at different scales – from the policy level to the farm level – to sustainably increase agricultural land and water productivity. The framework will be based on robust state of the art remote sensing and information and communication technologies to assess the terrestrial soil water balance and related biomass production to monitor agricultural land and water productivity, as well as the uptake of carbon dioxide by vegetation.

The project will facilitate countries to improve their capacity to identify land and water productivity gaps. Solutions to produce more sustainable, increased and secure crop yields with a reduced impact on the environment shall be developed in cooperation with stakeholders at different scales.
