    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Libya is characterized by water scarcity. Identifying agriculture areas is essential to improve crop and water productivity in Libya. Crop mask is prepared without ground data as proxy identification of agriculture areas for Fezzan, Libya. Crop varieties (Cereals, Tubers, Forage, Fruit, Vegetables and other crops) are mapped using NDVI time series derived from Sentinel-2 satellite imagery from Sep. 2021 to Apr. 2022 using Google Earth Engine. The map is prepared to support field data collection. The results should be further enhanced with ground validation data.

    The rapid escalation of the COVID-19 pandemic highlighted structural problems with Libyan food and agriculture value chains. Nine years of protracted conflict weakened Libya’s agriculture and deteriorated its food and agribusiness sector. The entire value chain is underdeveloped, is not well integrated and depends on imports, making it vulnerable to global supply shocks. The pandemic response requires a strong policy responses starting by making food and nutrition assistance at the heart of social protection programmes in Libya and to keep the food value chain alive by focusing on key logistics bottlenecks. Libya will benefit from keeping the global food trade open to be able to keep physical and economic access to food feasible and sustainable. Libya may rethink its food security to ensure strong and significant recovery from both conflict and COVID-19 crisis.
