The SERVIR program (servirglobal.net) is a joint development initiative of USAID and NASA that builds developing countries’ capacity to apply satellite data to decision-making for food security, water resources management, disaster management, land use, ecosystem management, and weather and climate. USAID recently completed an in-depth performance evaluation that explored the use, impact and value of SERVIR’s tools, data and capacity-building efforts for its beneficiary communities.

At this event, Isaac Morrison of Management Systems International will present the results of the new evaluation. USAID experts will discuss how SERVIR is incorporating lessons from the evaluation to improve development impacts. Finally, an expert panel will provide reactions to the findings for the broader community.
