Satellites and agroecology: participate in the 9th Quarterly of the SCO France

Published on 26/05/2023
Encouraged in many countries, agroecology is able to reconcile the different challenges related to agriculture by putting biodiversity and ecological processes back at the heart of this activity. On Thursday 22 June 2023, connect to discover four agroecological SCOlutions using satellite data during the ninth SCO France Quarterly Meeting.

An activity particularly dependent on the climate, agriculture is now experiencing many of the effects of climate change, which affect both yields and the quality of crops. By favoring production systems that rely on the functionalities offered by ecosystems, agroecology combines solutions for adapting to climate change with measures to mitigate its effects.

Thursday June 22, 2023 from 11am to 1pm, follow the ninth Quarterly meeting of Space Climate Observatory and discover the solutions of four SCO projects that support an agroecological approach by making the most of space data.

The programme of the day

  • CHOVE-CHUVA : The project aims to develop a tool for monitoring territorial dynamics in Mato Grosso (Brazilian Amazon) via indicators on the evolution of climatic and land use variables.
  • Eo4MountainPastoralism : This project aims to propose advanced statistical indicators to document the impact of climate change on the evolution of alpine wetlands and agro-pastoral practices, with the originality of correlating physical indicators with expected ecosystem services.
  • Space4IRRIG : The project is developing indicators to help water managers improve their knowledge of their territory and identify effective water resource management strategies for the future.
  • SCOLive : Using the olive tree as a bioindicator of climate change, SCOLive is setting up an observatory involving all the players in the field to map the diseases and parasites that are harmful to this age-old tree.

Launched in June 2021, the SCO France Quarterly is a regular meeting to animate the community and allow each project to show its progress, inspire others and create synergies.
