Last Friday, Eurisy hosted a Members' Corner workshop focusing on the Belgian Science Policy Office. Theme of this workshop was "Remote Sensing of African Urban Areas for Health and Vulnerability Assessment. 

During the workshop, our very own Jean-Christophe Schyns and Joost Vandenabeele gave an overview of the STEREO programme.

Next, Catherine Linard from UNamur's Department of Geography presented two STEREO projects focused on epidemiology and urban studies in sub-Saharan Africa: 

Malaria hotspots, identified based on data derived from surveys coupled with EO data on climate variables influencing vector-borne diseases (REACT project)

Sabine Vanhuysse from Université Libre de Bruxelles' Earth Observation and Geospatial Information Science then presented the SLUMAP project (Remote Sensing for Slum Mapping and Characterization in sub-Saharan African Cities), aimed at developing an open-source framework for the processing of remote sensing images to identify and characterise deprived urban areas.
