Maps for improved management of invasive plant species in Somaliland

Within the sustainable peri-urban milk value chain project in Somaliland, the unit has developed risk and spread maps for important invasive species (Prosopis juliflora and Parthenium hysterophorous). The maps were derived from dense time-series satellite observations as well as field data. Map below shows the occurence probability of prosopis julifora in Somaliland.  Red indicates high occurence probability while Yellow indicates low to medium probability.
