As part of the projects implemented in its area of intervention, the OSS develops interactive digital tools accessible on the internet that allow the sharing of information and data consolidated by the OSS to facilitate the decision-making of the concerned stakeholders in their natural resources management. These tools are divided into two categories:
Cartographic Instruments: Geoportals
Developed according to international norms and standards, geoportals are interactive platforms that allow users to query geographic databases gathering different categories such as: thematic maps, spatial data, satellite imagery, as well as georeferenced reports and documents.
Instruments for monitoring environmental parameters
These platforms make it possible to consult series of indicators and historical data through the visualization of graphs describing their evolution over time. These platforms include time profiles and monitoring and evaluation tools based on project indicators.
Instrument of exchange of good practices
It is a forum for the exchange of good sustainable land management practices in the Sahelo-Saharan zone. This portal brings together good practices published by the various institutions working on the issues of the fight against land degradation.
