The technical assistance (TA) was conceptualized to promote the use of satellite-based technology in formulating and monitoring food security policies. It will be implemented in four pilot countries the Lao PDR, the Philippines, Thailand and Viet Nam where the agriculture sector's contribution to the economy and employment remain significant. For each pilot country, the government agency with the mandate for compiling agriculture statistics will be designated the implementing agency and will be responsible for the execution of the TA's three major activities: (i) development of customized software applications and methodology to estimate paddy rice cultivation area and crop production based on satellite data and data obtained through crop-cutting experiments at a provincial level, (ii) training of counterpart staff in the four pilot countries, and (iii) development of an online training program on the use of satellite data for agricultural and rural statistics.
