Description: 

EUMETSAT and the African Development Bank (AfDB) will hold a webinar on the topic of "Earth Observation in Africa: Satellite data support for weather, hydrological and climate services" on 24 September 2020.

Since 2016, the SAWIDRA project implemented by the African Development Bank has helped local communities in Africa reduce the risk from natural disasters using satellite data. In this webinar, EUMETSAT and the AfDB hear from representatives from five Regional Climate Centres in Africa about the benefits Earth observation has brought to their areas, and discuss the future prospects for monitoring the climate, agriculture and water resources in a meteorologically uncertain future.
