GMES&Africa: Training on the use of MISBAR Agriculture & Water withdrawal monitoring services in Egypt, March 1-2, 2021


The national tele-training program on the use of the two services accessible on the MISBAR platform, organized within the framework of the GMES&AFRICA - North Africa Consortium project took end in Egypt.

This workshop was held on March 1-2, 2021 with the particular presence of Egyptian partners, end users & managers of agriculture & water resources & focused more specifically on the use of the “Seasonal Agriculture” &“Agricultural Water use in irrigated areas” monitoring services.

During this nationwide event, participants learned about the new functionalities provided by the MISBAR service platform & had the opportunity to discuss the specifications of the geoservices, dashboards & newsletters under development. 
Case studies proposed by users, in their area, have also been developed with the support of the project team (OSS, partners and service developers), & will be reproduced during a regional workshop scheduled in the weeks to come.
