ShareFair on geospatial tools and applications for climate investments

As changing climates affect farming conditions across the world, how can geospatial and remote sensing tools help IFAD and others decide on where adaptation investments are best needed and what impact these interventions will have? Considering such issues will be representatives from the Government of Indonesia and IFAD’s Senior Management; to be followed by a “ShareFair” - a virtual ideas marketplace – where participants will learn more about geospatial tools for targeting, assessing vulnerability, and accessing geodata; and their real life applications on, for example, pasture conditions in Kyrgyzstan, vulnerability assessments in Yemen, and soil erosion in Lesotho.
