The purpose of the MELODIES’ desertification service is to create services and tools which facilitate the production and sharing of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) environmental indicators from open data. The service will support affected countries in their reporting obligations. The developments that we make within MELODIES will improve the monitoring and reporting of environmental indicators of desertification, both by improving of the services (and consequently the quality of the generated products), and by improving the technical infrastructure on which the service is hosted, allowing the retrieval of new results in a timely fashion.
