Event Name:  How Should Space Support Local Communities? A Discussion on Earth Observation Data, Climate Change,
Event Description:  The United Nations declared “World Space Week,” October 4-10, 2018, will celebrate the role of space in bringing the world closer together. Unleashing the power of mobile technologies that puts more information into the hands of women farmers is one way that we can come closer together. Using Earth observation data more widely and effectively farmers can make climate-smart decision and make sure that food security exists even as the climate becomes harsher and erratic. But how can we maximize the benefits of space technology and data? What do decision makers and end users truly need in order to address a variety of global problems? How can we bring public and private investment to deploy new innovation in climate-smart agriculture? This event seeks to explore this issue by using one specific user group, African women farmers, as a discussion focus. Following introductory remarks by Secure World Foundation’s Director of Space Applications Programs Krystal Wilson, Dr Timiebi Aganaba-Jeanty, Assistant Professor, The School for the Future of Innovation in Society, Arizona State University will moderate a panel discussion. Female panelists will provide a variety of perspectives including that of data providers, processors, and users and will highlight current trends, new opportunities, and ongoing obstacles to maximizing the use of Earth observation data to address global problems. Co-hosted with the Centre for Innovation, Development and Society and the School for the Future of Innovation in Society, Arizona State University, this event is part of a nation-wide Ladies do Launch/Space for Women Panel discussion series. Other events as part of the series are taking place in Seattle, New York and San Francisco/Oakland Bay Area.
