Data and development

The scarcity of available and reliable data to measure policy outcomes in partner countries is a major challenge in our daily work. ADE is specialised in using remote sensing and big data to overcome this challenge.  We apply remote sensing methods to generate data when primary data is not sufficiently available to provide evidence-based conclusions and recommendations. Clients recognise ADE’s ability to generate and use reliable data.
