This book describes the interdisciplinary work of the United
States Agency for International Development (USAID)'s Famine Early
Warning Systems Network (FEWS NET) and its influence on
methodological and development policies in the US. FEWS NET
operational needs have driven science in biophysical remote sensing
applications through its collaboration with NASA, NOAA, USGS and
USDA, and socio-economic methodologies through its involvement with
USAID, the United Nation's World Food Program and numerous
international non-governmental organizations such as Save the
Children, Oxfam and others. The book describes FEWS NET's systems,
methods and presents several illustrative case studies that will
demonstrate the integration of physical and social science
disciplines in its work.
