The East Africa Agriculture Warning Explorer is based on near-real-time Earth observation and weather information and provides automatic ten-day drought conditions warnings for crops and rangelands at the provincial level.

This information and the indicators used are made available as maps and time series statistics in an interactive GIS environment to agricultural and food security analysts.

The platform was developed as part of the Intra-ACP Climate Services project in collaboration with the Joint Research Centre, and the information provided is synchronised with the JRC’s ASAP Warning Explorer.

The system was launched at the 57th Greater Horn of Africa Climate Outlook Forum (GHACOF 57), and a Training of Trainers was organised in the first week of February 2021.
