UNDP Africa Human Development Report acknowledges UN-SPIDER

On Tuesday, 15 May, the United Nations Development Programme released the 2012 Africa Human Development Report: Towards a Food Secure Future. Despite recent economic growth and plentiful natural resources, sub-Saharan Africa remains the world's most food insecure region. UNDP’s first Africa Human Development Report shows that food security and human development reinforce each other.

The report stresses, that in order to achieve food security vulnerability analysis is vital. It specifically mentions the role of UN-SPIDER in lessening sub-Saharan Africa's vulnerability to natural disasters by using space-based technologies (page 105).
