GeoNet Cast Equipment Inauguration

The GeoNet Cast Equipment installation and operational inauguration ceremony and reception was held on Thursday April 16, 2015 at the National Meteorological Agency headquarters.

The event was part of the GIACIS (Geodata for Innovative Agricultural Credit Insurance Scheme) project and was hosted by Kifiya Financial Technology. It began with keynote addresses from the National Meteorological Agency and Kifiya, to mark the start of the breakthrough advances in meteorology in Ethiopia.

Key stakeholders were invited to see first-hand how the technology works and can impact Ethiopia, more specifically smallholder farmers, by assisting microfinance institutions and insurance companies to provide data-driven micro credit insurance.
