An Innovative Space-Based Solution for Sustainable Livestock Management in Northern Russia
In 2016, the European Space Agency (ESA) and the French Space Agency (CNES) launched a challenge to qualify the potential for new markets in the field of livestock management, disease reduction, and sustainability of ecosystem services.
This project resonated with Russian scientists working with pastoral herders, natural reserves, and ES-PAS to track reindeer herds.
Together, ES-PAS, CLS and their Russian partners began discussions about how to help the pastoral ecosystem to manage reindeer sustainably in Northern Russia.
