digital earth africa webinar

The Digital Earth Africa (DE Africa) Webinar Series is a platform to share the latest advances of the DE Africa program, products and services, and allows stakeholders to more broadly discuss the challenges and opportunities of scaling the use of Earth observations across the continent.

While more and more satellite data is collected on a daily basis than ever before, access and capacity development issues still remain to make the most effective use of these data. For this Digital Earth Africa Webinar, an amazing set of speakers have been assembled to introduce you to an initial training resource for using the DE Africa platform, and discuss broader use cases and capacity development issues related to the use of Earth observations to drive decisions, policy, action and innovation. We hope you’ll be able to join the discussion!

The webinar will take place on February 3, 2021. Register here.
