The project has a strong component of capacity building. In the past under the project UTF/PAK/101/PAK, a number of training programmes have been carried out to improve capacity of Provincial Crop Reporting Services and other federal institutions in application of Satellite Remote Sensing and GIS Technologies for crop assessment monitoring.

Capacities to be established, improved, or expanded under this project are:

    training in using GIS, GPS and Remote Sensing
  • Provincial CRS's capacities to use satellite remote sensing data and GIS technologies for timely and verifiable crop forecasting and estimation
  • Provincial CRS will have automated tools to speed data collection and analysis and to integrate remotely sensed data with field data in making estimates and forecasts
  • Provincial CRS's capacities to produce reports with actionable information faster using both field data and remotely sensed data
  • Universities' capacities to do research to improve yield modeling in crop production estimation and forecasting and to help the CRSs
