Speeches Shim

The USAID/West Africa Regional Mission is pleased to announce its new partnership with the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT), who will implement the second phase of SERVIR West Africa 2 (SERVIR WA 2) over a five-year period.

SERVIR WA 2 connects “space to village” by helping West African countries use satellite data to address critical challenges in food security and agriculture, water and hydro-climatic disasters, weather and climate, land cover and land use change, and ecosystems services.  With ICRISAT and other regional and national leading organizations, USAID and NASA will continue to implement activities in Burkina Faso, Ghana, Niger, Nigeria and Senegal, as well as opening up new activities in other West African countries.
