I request all interested to submit innovative solutions for Agriculture for the  FOSS4G EO Challenge. Currently, nearly 800 million people struggle with debilitating hunger and malnutrition and can be found in every corner of the globe. That's one in every nine people, with the majority being women and children. Agriculture must respond to an increasing urban population and changing climate conditions. Optimising local food production to wisely support our nutrition needs is an area where creative solutions are essential to our future. Open Earth observations and open geospatial tools are key in helping us find solutions for Zero Hunger aim.

I thank the FOSS4G 2019 Team for organising this excellent challenge.

Best wishes,


Dr. Suchith Anand

Chief Scientific Adviser

Global Open Data for Agriculture and Nutrition
