Connecting Space to Village:
Geospatial information for improved environmental decision-making in the Amazon
SERVIR-Amazonia is the newest hub within the SERVIR initiative. Funded by USAID and with science and technology support from NASA, SERVIR-Amazonia is implemented by the Alliance of Bioversity International and the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) and a network of local and international partners serving the Amazon region, mainly the Spatial Informatics Group (SIG), Conservación Amazónica (ACCA), the Institute for Forest and Agriculture Management and Certification (IMAFLORA) and Fundación EcoCiencia.

SERVIR-Amazonia launched a service catalogue with an overview of the geospatial services that we are co-developing with our partners: Tailored, needs-based decision-support products (tools, data sets, training resources and capacity building activities) to improve environmental decision-making.
On Earth Day 2021, we are reminded that accurate and timely climate data are key to effectively inform decision-makers on water and ecosystem management, disaster preparedness, food security, energy provision and management, and land use planning issues. Successful risk management in these sectors requires precise and current climate information.
Currently in its third year of implementation, SERVIR-Amazonia has engaged with more than 30 Brazilian institutions and organizations to co-design climate-smart solutions and improve environmental decision-making
