SERVIR-Mekong Factsheet

The SERVIR-Mekong project promotes the use of publicly available satellite imagery and geospatial technologies in development work.

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID), in partnership with the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), is funding SERVIR-Mekong, a five-year (2014-2019) project implemented by the Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC). The project supports governments, regional institutions and other key stakeholders in the Lower Mekong countries to use publicly available satellite imagery and geospatial technologies, such as mapping and related analyses, to prepare for and respond to disasters, manage natural resources and improve food security. SERVIR-Mekong is part of a network of SERVIR hubs currently in operation across the developing world.
