Satellite Earth Observation (EO) has a tremendous potential to inform and facilitate international development work by providing evidences that can lead to improved land governance schemes. Since 2008 the European Space Agency (ESA) has worked with Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs) and their client countries to harness the benefits of EO in their operations and resources management. Recently, ESA started an initiative aiming at a more systematic approach in order to meet longer-term strategic geospatial information needs in both developing countries and international and regional developing organizations. This initiative brings together ESA, MDBs, client countries and European companies and knowledge institutes to work together towards the large scale exploitation of satellite data in support of international development by providing a suite of EO-based services and organizing various capacity building and communication activities. The goal of this masterclass is to share the state of the art of EO-based services for evidence based sustainable development. This will be done by demonstrating the use and benefits of these services in Agriculture and Rural Development. This masterclass will also show use cases based on our work with the World Bank group, the Asian Development Bank and the International Fund for Agricultural Development.
Raúl ZURITA-MILLA received in 2008 a Ph.D. degree from Wageningen University for his research on the use of the fused medium and high spatial resolution satellite images for mapping and monitoring heterogeneous landscapes. That same year, he joined the Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth observation (ITC) of the University of Twente (The Netherlands), where he is currently Associate Professor in spatio-temporal analytics. He is actively involved in teaching GIS, Remote Sensing and programming courses to MSc and post-graduate international students as well as in national and international research projects. He has published more than 30 journal peer-reviewed articles and it is on the editorial board of the online journal “Remote Sensing”.
