Innovative insurance service for farmers based on satellite data gets commercial follow up in Uganda
Smallholder farmers in Uganda are increasingly vulnerable to risks associated with changing weather patterns. The SUM-Africa project, supported by the G4AW program of Netherlands Space Office (NSO), provides satellite based drought index insurance to protect these smallholders. This week the Ugandan Agro Insurance Consortium (AIC) and the Dutch company EARS) signed a long-term contract to continue the delivery of this service. The AIC provides the insurance and EARS, lead partner in the Sum-Africa project, provides the satellite-based drought index.
The EO sector is moving fast but is characterized by a strong fragmentation. From all parts, from the research, the private sector, entities are scattered even if they are involved in the same thematic or market, even if they use the same input data, even they face similar processing capabilities issues. Defragmentation is needed. Such as the eoMALL (https://eomall.eu, currently in beta version) dedicated to the promotion of EO online services, linking Service Providers and customers, NextGEOSS aims to facilitate the access and the processing of data to EO users. This is why EARSC is involved, with 6 other EARSC members (Vito, Terradue, Euroconsult, CLS, Deimos Space, Deimos Imaging) in this H2020 project lead by DEIMOS Elecnor.

GEO and Amazon Web Services collaborate to provide cloud credits for projects that improve understanding of our planet
GEO member agencies and research organizations from developing countries are now able to access cloud services to help with the hosting, processing and analysis of big data about the Earth to inform decisions for sustainable development.
English version of the IFHE book on “Earth observation from space, Optical and radar imagery :A European success” is now available. If you wish to get it please click here:
The EO4GEO project is inviting experts in the Earth Observation / Geographic Information sectors to participate in the process of developing a Body of Knowledge (BoK) for GI and EO. We are looking for professionals ready to support the description of the particular concepts (topics) in different inter-related knowledge areas, by commenting and contributing to the elaboration of the relevant texts.
Airbus-led consortium to provide European Union with seamless satellite-based coverage of Europe at unprecedented scale and speed
Toulouse, 12 July 2018 – The European Commission and the European Space Agency (ESA) have awarded an Airbus-led consortium a contract for the provision of satellite-based seamless coverage of the whole of Europe at very high-resolution. The consortium includes Airbus Defence and Space, Planet, Deimos Imaging, IGN-France and space4environment. This agreement is part of the Copernicus Earth Observation programme for the European Union (EU).
Copernicus Sentinel data is being used by water utilities in the UK to improve the management of peatlands, leading to better water quality for local citizens, reduced costs of purification for the water
companies and strong environmental benefits.
The EC has published its proposed budgets for the next Multi-Annual Financial Framework Perspective 2021 to 2028 which includes an allocation for “space” of €16b. This will provide continuity for the 2 EC flagships; Galileo and Copernicus.
The project, which is now in its first steps (Preparing the space/geospatial sectors skills strategy), intends to identify gaps and shortages between GI and EO training offer.
Tailoring Earth Observation services to Europe’s needs: Coordinate, combine and cooperate
GAF currently completed an ESA funded project to support the African Mineral Geoscience Initiative (AMGI). The World Bank initiated AMGI Project is a pan-African initiative for the collection, consolidation, interpretation and effective dissemination of national and regional geological, geochemical, geophysical and mineral resource data through a geo-portal. It intends to develop a complete Geological Data Catalogue for entire Africa in relation to mineral resources.
Airbus further strengthens its Earth observation imagery portfolio with the addition of TripleSat satellite data
