Year published: 17/03/2017

New strategies for agriculture monitoring, rural land use planning and land management are urgently required to reduce hunger and poverty among the rural population of Afghanistan and to ensure sustainable food and feed production for future generations. The availability of reliable information on natural resources and agriculture for its monitoring and analysis is indispensable to the development and implementation of such strategies. The activities proposed in this document aim to strengthen/improve the national capacity on rice monitoring and analysis by use of geospatial and innovative technology based on Proba-V, Aqua/Terra, Landsat-8, Sentinel-1, Sentinel-2, SPOT-5/6/7 and Pleiades imagery.
