CGIAR Consortium for Spatial Information (CGIAR-CSI) is the geospatial science Community of Practice that facilitates CGIAR’s research using geospatial data and analysis. CGIAR-CSI coordinates community-wide activities to bring CGIAR’s spatial scientists together through convening, communications, and co-developing geospatial datasets and publications. 

We will start the session with a keynote presentation Rolf de By (ITC/University of Twente), presenting innovative ways to use remote sensing technology to improve agricultural practices in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, followed by a panel discussion on the issues around geospatial data management in CGIAR and proposed solutions, and a series of lightning talks to share all the geospatial innovations in CGIAR and partners.
