eLEAF’s mission is to be the global reference for operational and reliable high-quality data on crop growth and water use, to increase food production, support sustainable water management, and protect environmental systems worldwide.
Based on satellite data, we provide insight into crop production levels, the associated water use, and water resources availability. Our data can optimise food production and crop water use efficiency, identify food security threats, and safeguard fair allocation of available water resources.
Priorities as a partner of the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data
eLEAF commits to building an operational and reliable high-quality dataset on crop growth and water use to increase food production, support sustainable water management, and protect environmental systems worldwide.
Based on satellite data, eLEAF provides insight in the status, trends, and progress in reaching:
- SDG 2 'Zero Hunger' (i.e., target 2.4: Increasing agricultural productivity);
- SDG 6 'Clean Water and Sanitation' (i.e., target 6.4: Substantially increase water use efficiency);
- SDG 15 'Life on Land' (i.e., target 15.3: Combat desertification and achieve a land degradation neutral world); and,
- SDG 17 Partnerships for the Goals (i.e., target 17.18: Increase the availability of high-quality, timely, and reliable data).
