SERVIR

A joint development initiative of NASA and USAID, SERVIR works in partnership with leading regional organizations world-wide to help developing countries use information provided by Earth-observing satellites and geospatial technologies to manage climate risks and land use.  SERVIR empowers decision-makers with tools, products, and services to act locally on climate-sensitive issues such as disasters, agriculture, water, ecosystems, and land use.

 

SERVIR is improving awareness, increasing access to information, and supporting analysis to help people in Amazonia, West Africa, Eastern and Southern Africa, Hindu Kush-Himalaya, and Lower Mekong regions manage food security, water resources, land use change, and natural disasters. With activities in more than 45 countries and counting, SERVIR has already developed over 70 custom tools, collaborated with over 200 institutions, and trained almost 3000 individuals, improving the capacity to develop local solutions.

March marks the onset of the dry and hot season in Thailand. In the region, dry vegetation coupled with small human-made fires often result in uncontrolled forest fires. Agricultural burning and forest fires, including transboundary haze, contribute to high levels of pollution.

Students from St. Scholastica Primary School in Nairobi, Kenya studied the links between weather patterns and malaria occurrences using mosquito habitat mapping within the Lake Victoria region in Kenya.
