Kenya

Department for International Development UKAID

Titre : Sat4Wildlife ecosystem of Geospatial Intelligence tools to protect wildlife & habitats

Pays : Kenya

Numéro du projet : GB-GOV-13-GCRF-IP-C3UKSA-C3-09-FFI

Organismes de mise en œuvre : FAUNA AND FLORA INTERNATIONAL

Durée : Actual Start 01 Aug 2020 // Actual End30 Jun 2021

Objectifs
Kenya has lost 68% of its wildlife in the last 40 years. This project will harness satellite-enabled Geospatial Intelligence (GI) to help halt the loss of Kenya’s biodiversity, reduce degradation of habitats and conserve the local livelihoods that depend on them. Satellite technologies have a unique and important role to play in bringing ubiquitous connectivity and GI to the remote and inaccessible landscapes of Kenya. This Sat4Wildlife project proposes a coordinated partnership approach to deliver a technical ecosystem of interoperable tools. GI tools include : satellite enabled Internet of Things (IoT) sensors, wildlife GPS tracking solutions, Earth Observation (EO) data and analytics software. An integrated technology approach will equip conservation managers with these technologies to help reduce threats to species and habitats and improve climate resilience. The project will ensure that these satellite technologies are effectively applied, have sustainable business models and that learnings from Kenya can be used to improve global conservation practice. The project will open access for UK satellite-enabled solutions to a new market opportunity and increase the uptake of satellite tools in Kenya. It will increase the capabilities of technologists in-country to build on core satellite technologies to build new home-grown solutions. Only through collaboration, fostering local ownership of technology - and by taking a holistic view of the whole conservation technology ecosystem - will we transfer technological innovation into sustainable benefits for nature and the communities they support.
