A Practical Farmers Toolkit
September 14, 2021
HiView has kicked off a new RVO project: A Practical Farmers` Toolkit.
Water management in Egypt needs to cope with the increasing water scarcity issues. Especially the agricultural sector, being the largest water consumer, is pressured to decrease its water demands.
This project and the proposed capacity building activities are
perceived as game-changing in bringing innovative remote sensing tools to farmers and increasing the adoption of the tools amongst the farming community, ultimately increasing water productivity in the
agricultural areas of Egypt.

Using drones to attract youth into agribusiness and increase food production in Kenya
June 15, 2021
In Kenya, roughly 70% of the population is aged between 15-34. This age group is expected to double by the year 2050. Approximately 1 million young Kenyans enter the job market each year and only about 35% are absorbed into the formal job market. The remaining 65% end up unemployed or under employed. The agriculture sector dominates the Kenyan economy in terms of employment and contribution to GDP. Yet, the engagement of youth in agriculture is minimal.
