Lux Development created a Cooperation Programme with the aim to support the Government of Mali in its efforts to reduce poverty and food insecurity. For this purpose, Lux Dev involved GisAction to carry out a feasibility study focused on the development of the geographic-based information system for agronomic monitoring and rice yield estimation.
The collaboration gives the possibility to codesign an appropriate and transferable solution, together with institutional, technical, scientific and strategic stakeholders.
The goal is to develop a tailor-made WEB GIS integrating ground-truth, remote sensing, weather data, modelling and spatial analysis. The capability to share all the process and the data within a web platform allows to improve farmers’ decision-making process, to support university and scientific researchers, and to strengthen the agricultural statistics framework.
