Strengthening agricultural decisions in countries at risk of food insecurity: The GEOGLAM crop monitor for early warning

Source(s):  Elsevier

The GEOGLAM Crop Monitor for Early Warning provides a public good of timely, EO-driven and actionable information on crop conditions within the countries most vulnerable to food insecurity and provides a novel and impactful use of EO for informing food security decisions. The CM4EW takes a novel approach to increasing confidence of crop assessments by bringing together on a monthly basis the international community with a mandate for agricultural monitoring in these parts of the world. 

The underpinning value of the CM4EW is that by sharing assessments, data, expertise, and ground information on a regular basis, we can significantly reduce uncertainty around production prospects, and encourage coordination among the primary humanitarian organizations and national governments. Better information on crops conditions, as it intersects with early warning, increasing resilience, and reducing vulnerability, will also help us towards achieving the SDGs.
