Leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Satellite Remote Sensing Data for Decision-making in the African
Agricultural Sector
I/ Introduction
Climate change hot spot where
increased hazards probability,
vulnerability and exposure meet:
climate risk is high
Climate change: human lives and
countries’ economies are at stake
Climate actions are needed for
effective adaptation and DRR
AI: Field combining computer
science and robust datasets to
enable problem-solving

Improving climate models
Leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Satellite Remote Sensing Data for Decision-making in the African
Agricultural Sector
II/ Climate Modeling
 Climate model
The potential of machine learning application
learning lies everywhere in the workflow
 Climate data monitoring, quality control,
data fusion from different sources
 Emulate model components, develop
improved parametrization schemes, learn
the underlying equations of motion
Bias correction, feature detection,
multimodel ensembling, uncertainty
quantification, further downscaling
 Better-suite boundary forcings, physical
consistency
Leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Satellite Remote Sensing Data for Decision-making in the African
Agricultural Sector
II/ Climate Modeling
 Multimodel ensembling
Jose et al. 2022
- All ML algorithms
perform better than the
arithmetic mean
- Precipitation: LSTM
- Temperature: RF and
LSTM

II/ Climate Modeling
 Further Downscaling
Substantial improvements captured when using DL CNN-based downscaled data

III/ Mitigation: Carbon Sequestration
 Agriculture as a source of emissions
Leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Satellite Remote Sensing Data for Decision-making in the African
Agricultural Sector
III/ Mitigation: Carbon Sequestration
 Agriculture fields can
act as a carbon sink
- Crops photosynthesis
sequesters carbon in the soil
- Any disturbance to the soil
releases carbon
Leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Satellite Remote Sensing Data for Decision-making in the African
Agricultural Sector
III/ Mitigation: Carbon Sequestration
 Monitoring/measuring
- AI and remote sensing can be
leveraged to identify areas of large/low
emissions, policy and practices
causing it
 Reducing
- AI to be used (soil analysis, crop
selection, suitable areas, etc.) to
identify best practices to reduce
emissions
 Removing
- AI to detect areas of woody plants,
encroachment, suitable conditions for
agroforestry
Leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Satellite Remote Sensing Data for Decision-making in the African
Agricultural Sector
IV/ Natural Resource Management
Reducing forest degradation and improving forest
management
Focus on conserving and restoring peatlands and coastal
wetlands, such as mangroves
Protect, restore and enhance marine and coastal ecosystems
including marine conservation.
Leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Satellite Remote Sensing Data for Decision-making in the African
Agricultural Sector
IV/ Natural Resource Management
 Reducing forest degradation and improving forest management
 Increasing accuracy of forest data
- Satellite imagery, forest inventory, mapping species, tree growth, sequestration
 Finding vulnerable forest areas
- track illegal mining, roads, fires, housing
 Stopping illegal logging
- track the noises of chainsaws and logging trucks
 Reforestation
- Monitor tree growth, track optimal conditions, areas encroachment

  • 1. Leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Satellite Remote Sensing Data for Decision-making in the African Agricultural Sector AFRICA AGRICULTURE WATCH (AAgWa) • AI TRENDS IN CLIMATE ACTION • Dr. Mouhamadou Bamba Sylla AIMS-Canada Research chair in climate change science African Institute for Mathematical Sciences, AIMS Rwanda sylla.bamba@aims.ac.rw; syllabamba@yahoo.fr
  • 2. Leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Satellite Remote Sensing Data for Decision-making in the African Agricultural Sector Outline I/ Introduction II/ Improving Climate Modeling III/ Mitigation: Carbon Sequestration IV/ Natural Resource Management V/ Summary
  • 3. Leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Satellite Remote Sensing Data for Decision-making in the African Agricultural Sector I/ Introduction Climate change hot spot where increased hazards probability, vulnerability and exposure meet: climate risk is high Climate change: human lives and countries’ economies are at stake Climate actions are needed for effective adaptation and DRR AI: Field combining computer science and robust datasets to enable problem-solving
  • 4. Leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Satellite Remote Sensing Data for Decision-making in the African Agricultural Sector II/ Climate Modeling  Climate model 1/120 Schematic of climate models Improving climate models
  • 5. Leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Satellite Remote Sensing Data for Decision-making in the African Agricultural Sector II/ Climate Modeling  Climate model The potential of machine learning application learning lies everywhere in the workflow  Climate data monitoring, quality control, data fusion from different sources  Emulate model components, develop improved parametrization schemes, learn the underlying equations of motion Bias correction, feature detection, multimodel ensembling, uncertainty quantification, further downscaling  Better-suite boundary forcings, physical consistency
  • 6. Leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Satellite Remote Sensing Data for Decision-making in the African Agricultural Sector II/ Climate Modeling  Multimodel ensembling Jose et al. 2022 - All ML algorithms perform better than the arithmetic mean - Precipitation: LSTM - Temperature: RF and LSTM
  • 7. Leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Satellite Remote Sensing Data for Decision-making in the African Agricultural Sector II/ Climate Modeling  Further Downscaling Substantial improvements captured when using DL CNN-based downscaled data
  • 8. Leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Satellite Remote Sensing Data for Decision-making in the African Agricultural Sector Attribution using climate models IPCC 2021 Attribution using deep learning: CNN and VI Bone et al. 2022 II/ Climate Modeling  Attribution
  • 9. Leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Satellite Remote Sensing Data for Decision-making in the African Agricultural Sector III/ Mitigation: Carbon Sequestration  Agriculture as a source of emissions
  • 10. Leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Satellite Remote Sensing Data for Decision-making in the African Agricultural Sector III/ Mitigation: Carbon Sequestration  Agriculture fields can act as a carbon sink - Crops photosynthesis sequesters carbon in the soil - Any disturbance to the soil releases carbon
  • 11. Leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Satellite Remote Sensing Data for Decision-making in the African Agricultural Sector III/ Mitigation: Carbon Sequestration  Monitoring/measuring - AI and remote sensing can be leveraged to identify areas of large/low emissions, policy and practices causing it  Reducing - AI to be used (soil analysis, crop selection, suitable areas, etc.) to identify best practices to reduce emissions  Removing - AI to detect areas of woody plants, encroachment, suitable conditions for agroforestry
  • 12. Leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Satellite Remote Sensing Data for Decision-making in the African Agricultural Sector IV/ Natural Resource Management Reducing forest degradation and improving forest management Focus on conserving and restoring peatlands and coastal wetlands, such as mangroves Protect, restore and enhance marine and coastal ecosystems including marine conservation.
  • 13. Leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Satellite Remote Sensing Data for Decision-making in the African Agricultural Sector IV/ Natural Resource Management  Reducing forest degradation and improving forest management  Increasing accuracy of forest data - Satellite imagery, forest inventory, mapping species, tree growth, sequestration  Finding vulnerable forest areas - track illegal mining, roads, fires, housing  Stopping illegal logging - track the noises of chainsaws and logging trucks  Reforestation - Monitor tree growth, track optimal conditions, areas encroachment
