Streamlining handovers and improving global project operations Credit also to Jonathan Liondis (would not upload from his account) Please see example of the spreadsheet in the images below. as well as how to use it.    The length and number of documents in handovers is daunting, and the absence of linkages between documents discourages exploration of useful concepts and information. Additionally, the lack of standardisation in handovers makes it difficult to teach new Trekkers...

As an interesting update, here are two things happening in the agriculture sector specifically as it relates to coffee. A huge commodity in Timor-Leste farming.  Potentially, these are avenues to secure funding and support should it arise that a potential solution could be looking to improve the state of coffee farming in Timor-Leste  1) Starbucks in Timor-Leste (Brand new as of LAST MONTH)  https://www.foodbev.com/news/starbucks-releases-latest-single-origin-coffee-from-timor-leste/ 2)...

When we make a recommendation to a customer on products that they will need in order to achieve the desired results, do we have a system in place for ensuring that the customer is able to get access to those supplies?  Would it be of value to engage brands that produce everyday products that these farmers require and attempt to negotiate a deal on pricing?  Not sure if this has been attempted before, or if has already been considered. But perhaps looking into a way of subsidizing products?

These maps and pages may be of use for the ag teams. Each one contains data for Fiji, Malawi, Timor-Leste and Cambodia.  the extent of data does vary, but it contains things like water stress, soil type, crops grown, climate data.  Pages are fairly intuitive but I am happy to explain if needed  1) https://www.soilgrids.org/#!/?lon=33.9301963&lat=-13.2687204&zoom=9&layer=TAXNWRB_250m&vector=1&showInfo=1 (my favourite) 2)...

When we look into farming practices and opportunities in country, we want to be ensuring we strive for as much impact as possible.  Why not look towards agrovoltaic farming? It could be a way to lease land for a cheap rate, provide food for farmers, provide energy for a region and double down on land productivity.  See link: 1) visual what it looks like https://vimeo.com/39260301 2) http://www.telegram.com/article/20130224/news/102249792

Ever Heard of Open Street Map?  How about Map Swipe?  HandyGPS?  Nah, didn't think so. These are all examples of tech that makes spatial science easy, scalable and for the most part, open source. Its where I a solution may lie for ERS.  Open street map is currently used to identify features and things of interest on a map. Simply open the area you want, look at the satellite imagery, select the feature and name it. Sweet, you now know something about that area....
