Putting Data in People’s Hands
SERVIR is a joint development initiative between NASA and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). We provide local decision-makers with the tools, training and services they need to act on climate-sensitive issues like disasters, agricultural security, water management and land use.
Since the mid-2000s, SERVIR has worked with over 250 institutions in more than 45 countries to develop over 70 custom tools and train more than 7,000 people.
Our global network of partners includes other U.S. government agencies, local and national government agencies in the regions where we work, universities, non-governmental organizations and other specialized groups.
With their help, we’re improving awareness, increasing access to information and supporting analysis to help people all over the world develop local solutions to local challenges. SERVIR is the full name of the program, not an acronym — it showcases how NASA Earth observations can serve the world.
