Event detection for water and food security in Mali

Mali is fighting a large number of economic and ecologic challenges. However data is needed to support solutions to these problems. In this project we help the Ministère de L'Energie et L'Eau in Mali with an analysis  of the longer term drivers and effects of floods and droughts for IWRM, by using and combining new online media and remote sensing data sources, The ultimate aim is to improve the sustainable and equitable water allocation, as well as the equitable and efficient water use in urban and peri-urban agriculture in the Inner Niger Delta. The project is supported by the Dutch ViaWater programme.
