Mobile Data for Moving Herd Management and better incomes (MODHEM)

Burkina Faso

Geodata for Agricuture and Water

Titre : Mobile Data for Moving Herd Management and better incomes (MODHEM)

Pays : Burkina Faso

Date/Durée : 2015 - 2018

MODHEM project works to improve the food security situation of pastoralists and farmers’ households through access to and use of geo-satellite derived data. They will see at least a 15% increase of income - for the farmers this is estimated at 10% - thanks to accurate information about biomass availability, water availability, weather forecasts and livestock market prices.

Groupe cible
Within the project period, 100,000 pastoralists’ households and 200,000 farmers’ households in Burkina Faso will be given access to the information service. This will be tailor-made to pastoralists and farmers’ information and decision making needs, giving them more predictability for their productions. The information service will provide them with instant access to reliable information, offered over simple mobile phones to subscribers against a modest fee to a call centre and text messages.
