Sentinel partners take stock and plan, with two years to go
In early November, Sentinel partners from Ethiopia, Ghana, Zambia and the UK met in Livingstone, Zambia. The agenda was to review progress, share experiences and learning, and plan activities for the remaining two years of the project.
Socioeconomic impacts of agricultural expansion: what we have learnt so far
Reconnaissance surveys have been successfully conducted in Zambia, Ghana, and Ethiopia. Our three in-country partners are now at different stages of their site report writing to inform the Zambia workshop.
Large-scale, freely available data for Ghana, Ethiopia, and Zambia
We need appropriate spatial data to understand how agricultural development has been affecting the environment in Ghana, Ethiopia, and Zambia to date. At UCL, we have been looking to large-scale, freely available data sources to see which might b
Sentinel’s communicators sharpen skills in learning exchange
IIED’s Communications Learning Week in late June hosted by the institute’s communications team was timely and highly opportune for the Sentinel project.
Reconnaissance surveys of study sites get under way in Ethiopia
Sentinel researchers have begun the process of shortlisting study sites where there has been expansion of agriculture into natural habitats in each of the three Sentinel focal countries – Ethiopia, Ghana and Zambia – beginning with Ethiopia.
Impacts of agricultural expansion: what will we explore?
At UCL we’re interested in this question: do areas where crops are grown overlap with areas that are naturally high in biodiversity?
Site selection for Sentinel
The Sentinel project seeks to understand the extent, nature and impacts of agricultural expansion into natural habitats.
