IT Products & Services / IT Predictive Modeling
The Regional Strategic Analysis and Knowledge Support System (ReSAKSS) supports the successful implementation of the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP) by providing policy-relevant data; facilitating dialogue among stakeholders; monitoring progress in reviewing goals; and strengthening mutual accountability processes at continental, regional, and national levels.
ReSAKSS’ work involves building on existing data, developing analytical tools, expanding the knowledge base, and enabling timely access to these resources to facilitate evidence-based decision-making for African countries.
ReSAKSS has also developed an agricultural e-Atlas as a planning and decision-support tool focusing on agricultural productivity and food security to assist country-level analysts, policymakers, and other stakeholders. Furthermore, Africa Agriculture Watch (AAgWa) by AKADEMIYA2063 is a web-based platform that is linked to a technical model that employs cutting-edge machine learning techniques and remotely sensed data to predict agricultural yields and production levels of several crops across Africa.
To stimulate innovative use of data on African economies and create knowledge tools that contribute to addressing matters of strategic importance to Africa, ReSAKSS Data challenge participants are encouraged to explore data on ReSAKSS, eAtlas, and AAgWa to take part in one of the two IT contests below:
