EC EVA project page. This page shows all the spatial data layers, maps and documents that have been mapped to the EC EVA project on the Landscape Portal. The project has two objectives: to equip partner countries with the tools they need to accurately understand land degradation dynamics in order to influence policies and interventions, and to reverse land degradation across those countries through interventions that promote a re-greening of the landscapes. A detailed monitoring at fine scales of the biophysical and social consequences of interventions will let the project derive compelling, actionable evidence with a high degree of confidence about the context-specific costs and benefits of proposed approaches.
Regreening Africa is an ambitious ﬁve-year project that seeks to reverse land degradation among 500,000 households, and across one million hectares in eight countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. By incorporating trees into croplands, communal lands and pastoral areas, regreening eﬀorts make it possible to reclaim Africa’s degraded landscapes.
We work towards the application of GeoScience in real decision contexts, such as
climate change adaptation, hydrological effects of changes in climate and land cover,
targeting of agroforestry interventions, provision of soil fertility and surveillance
advisory services for smallholder farmers, digital soil and land use/cover mapping, and measuring
impacts of interventions, all using open source software.
