SWF Co-Hosts Event on Space Technology Supporting Local Communities

Thursday, October 18, 2018

In partnership with the Centre for Innovation, Development and Society and the School for the Future of Innovation in Society, Arizona State University, SWF sponsored a panel on Earth observation data, climate change, and African women farmers. By focusing on one specific user group, the discussion was able to more fully explore how to use Earth observation data more widely and effectively so farmers can make climate-smart decision and ensure food security in the coming years. Speakers from NASA, USAID’s GeoCenter, and Kenya’s International Center for Tropical Agriculture talked about their organizations current work in this area and how can we maximize the benefits of space technology and data.

This event was part of a nation-wide World Space Week Ladies do Launch/Space for Women Panel series. More information, including a recording, is available on the SWF event page here.
