Unlocking agricultural insights from space

We collaborated with the Netherlands Space Office (NSO)'s Geodata for Agriculture and Water (G4AW) programme to present 11 projects from the region, all of which make use of geodata across Asia to achieve better outcomes, from preventing diseases in crops to guaranteeing incomes for smallholder farmers.

We were joined by Margaret Vonno, Ambassador of the Netherlands to Singapore, and Bruce Gosper, High Commissioner of Australia to Singapore.
