WaPOR, remote sensing for water productivity

WaPOR at the International Conference “Artificial Intelligence, food for all”


WaPOR was presented during the International Conference “Artificial Intelligence (AI), food for all” organized by the Rome call signatories - FAO, the Pontifical Academy for Life, IBM and Microsoft - on 24 September 2020. The global partnership between the Rome Call signatories is focused on an ethical approach to provide concrete and ethically-founded solutions to the agri-food sector, in a context marked by COVID-19 that can seriously affect food security and nutrition. During the conference, Jippe Hoogeveen, Senior Officer of the FAO Land and Water Division, showcased WaPOR as a concrete example of using artificial intelligence to support decision makers in facing the global environmental challenges and to help farmers produce more nutritious food with less water.a
