ASIACOVER - Towards the Development and Applications of a Multi-purpose Environmental and Natural Resources Information Base for Food Security and Sustainable Development
The renewable natural resources of many Asian countries have come under severe strain over the past two or three decades and most indicators point towards a continuation of this trend. Whilst a large amount of data related to land cover exist in Asia, most are not consistent over large geographic areas and therefore cannot be aggregated at regional and/or sub-regional scale. Hence, the aim of the ... more

El Niño situation and prospects: April 2002
April 2002. This report is a coupled atmospheric and oceanic phenomenon; predictions are based on several independent observations. To estimate future El Niño-Southern Oscillation (or ENSO) conditions, a common practice is to compare different reputable models that currently represent the state-of-the-art as far as dynamical and statistical ENSO prediction systems are concerned.

Monitoring of global food supply and demand; more than just the estimation of crop production
One of the goals of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations is the reduction of food insecurity in the world. While the proper foundation of this goal lies, among others, in the increase of food production and ensuring access to food, there is also a need to monitor, on an operational basis, the current food supply and demand situation, so that timely interventions can be... more

Preparation of land cover database of Bulgaria through remote sensing and GIS
The FAO project TCP/BUL/8922 "Strengthening Capacity in Agricultural Development through Remote Sensing and GIS" has produced 14 land cover maps at 1:50 000 scale for selected test areas of the country, covering 5 600 sq km. These maps were prepared using Landsat satellite data, acquired in 1998 and 1999 as the main data source and thus represent the land cover existing at that time. The land cove... more
