Early warning for famine with Molly Brown

Early warning for famine

‘The reason it’s called Famine Early Warning Systems Network, is that if nothing is done, a situation may develop into a famine.’ – Molly Brown

NASA research scientist Molly Brown measures vegetation in areas of Africa vulnerable to food insecurity and famine. Brown and other scientists have developed a Famine Early Warning System Network, which uses satellite measurements to help determine if and when a part of Earth needs food aid.

EarthSky’s Lindsay Patterson speaks with Molly Brown in this 8-minute podcast.
