|Abstract:||The publication is the scientific report of the second workshop organized in this field in East Africa. The initial objectives of the workshop were: - to verify the state of the art and progress made since the first workshop in 2003; - to facilitate the development of a crop and rangeland monitoring system for the whole of Africa with compatible sub-systems having the potential for homogeneous interpretation and utilization. In the course of the workshop, these objectives were expanded to encompass: - a more focussed attention to information for livestock-based communities - an analysis why the first network had not really taken shape as rapidly as expected - solidification of the relations between the national services and the EU-JRC activities - inclusion of partners that had, so far, not been included in the network - a better focus on a system permitting a more rapid response to warnings of impending critical situations - the collection of information and opinions that can facilitate the formulation of the way forward - an assessment of the impact of EU-originated information supply on the real-life situation.|
