Monitoring of tropical Wetlands using Copernicus satellite data

Demo-Wetlands is a research project, designed to explicitly address the need of international conventions for standardized methods of wetland monitoring by satellite remote sensing. As these fragile ecosystems are facing increasing pressure through global warming, pollution, overuse and land use change, up to date information on the state of global wetlands are key to support their protection.

Exploring the spatial dimensions of malaria

The primary objective of MALAREO was to develop technology and implement EO capacities within malaria vector control and management programs in southern Africa. Malaria is a preventable and curable disease. Fundamental is the control and management of the vector. There is a need for accurate and effective monitoring and evaluation systems as a resource to inform decisions that will assist in achieving these goals.
