SERVIR brings together a variety of people from diverse backgrounds to create a special team for addressing complex environmental issues around the globe and providing solutions to local decision makers and stakeholders. Our team includes scientists, technicians, development practitioners, subject matter experts, and other key people in the hubs, the SERVIR coordination office, NASA and USAID headquarters, NASA centers in the U.S., and universities and other institutions around the world.
The SERVIR Coordination Office is located at NASA Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, and is part of the Capacity Building Program in the Earth Science Division's Applied Sciences Program at NASA Headquarters in Washington DC. SERVIR team members at the Coordination Office connect NASA scientific tools to existing tools in the hubs and provide support to and coordination of SERVIR projects globally. These team members also help coordinate among institutions within the countries and among SERVIR and its partners in the U.S. and abroad.
The SERVIR USAID/Washington team is part of the Bureau for Resilience, Environment, and Food Security. The team coordinates with the USAID network around the world, the partnership with NASA, and the SERVIR Support team. The SERVIR coordinators at USAID missions are liaisons to SERVIR hubs and provide region-specific coordination, expertise, and guidance.
Applied Sciences Team
The Applied Sciences Team supports SERVIR in developing Earth observation tools that address environmental and climate issues across the globe. The competitively selected team members are world-class experts in applied Earth science from leading U.S. universities, NASA, and other U.S.-based research institutions. The Applied Sciences Team works in collaboration with SERVIR partners to design cutting-edge tools and services that use the best and most appropriate science.
SERVIR Regional Hub Teams:
Hub team members are in charge of day-to-day on-site operations: gathering end-user requirements, collecting and processing the necessary data, combining it with ground observations, and getting the results quickly into the hands of national environmental management and disaster response leaders.
