Geospatial Technologies for Climate Resilience in Agriculture

Climate change influences agriculture and agriculture-based livelihoods both directly and indirectly. As climate change continues to pose significant challenges to agricultural systems worldwide, the adoption of geospatial technologies has emerged as a critical strategy to enhance climate resilience in agriculture. Geospatial technologies including Remote sensing, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Global Positioning System (GPS), offer powerful tools for data collection, analysis, and decision-making. By enabling the monitoring and assessment of climate related variables such as temperature, precipitation, soil moisture, and crop growth, these technologies empower farmers, researchers and policymakers to make informed decisions and adapt to changing climate conditions. Applications of geospatial technologies, such as precision agriculture, yield monitoring, early warning systems, soil mapping and natural resource management enhance the climate resilience of agriculture by optimizing resource use, increasing productivity, and minimizing environmental impacts. Geospatial technologies represent a valuable and evolving toolset for addressing climate resilience in agriculture and helping to secure food production in a changing world.
