SIBELIUS: Delivering improved resilience for Mongolian herding communities using satellite derived services (IPP Case Study)

The SIBELIUs project has developed and delivered new technology which is providing improved pasture monitoring capabilities in Mongolia to support the country’s large and economically significant herding community. Satellite Earth observation provides an efficient means for monitoring environmental parameters, such as pasture, snow and drought, over large regions, which can facilitate improved pasture management decisions and to allow preparations to be made as soon as problems are seen to be developing.
