User workshop 27th September
The third AfriCultuReS User Workshop of 2019 was hosted by the Centre for GIS and Remote Sensing of the University of Rwanda on 27th September 2019. This workshop included representatives from local and national government departments, research/academia, and farmers’ organisations.
The workshop showed the importance of integrating AfriCultuReS products and services into the rapidly evolving Rwandan geospatial sector. There are an increasing number of earth observation based products available in Rwanda and an increasing number of locally-produced high-resolution ground datasets. This offers exciting potential for collaboration, but brings with it an accompanying risk of duplication and redundancy. Meaningful partnerships with Rwandan institutions will therefore be essential to the success of any new project.
