Hadi Jaafar speaks on remote sensing and Water productivity at the World Bank webinar

Dr. Hadi Jaafar, Associate Professor of Irrigation Engineering and Water Management at the Department of Agriculture at FAFS, was a guest speaker about remote sensing and water productivity at the “Hydro-informatics for Water Productivity" Webinar organized by the World Bank Group and the Global Water Security and Sanitation Partnership (GWSP) on February 17th.  

The webinar featured guest speakers and water experts from FAO, IHE-Delft, and the World Bank and was designed to provide a thorough perspective of the application of Modern hydro-informatics to water productivity and present an overview of key concepts, case studies, and solutions for improvements to help provide operational linkages. During the session, Dr. Jaafar presented AgSAT, the world's first free mobile and web application that helps farmers get their crop water requirements and irrigation run times in real-time anywhere on Earth. He also discussed how AgSAT and the HSEB model that he developed can be used to monitor, benchmark, and manage water productivity globally and at the field level in a spatial context.

The Webinar was attended by more than 80 World Bank staff and experts. ​
