Accelerating Kenya’s Transformation  Agenda

Kenya is a leading voice in the development of global climate finance frameworks. Earth Observation data plays an important role in several key strategic priorities related to agriculture, housing, forest carbon markets and digital transformation. Kenya’s diverse and mature geospatial community can leverage near-daily satellite imagery from Planet to support a wide range of programs in the Bottom-Up Economic Transformation Agenda (BETA) and other government programs, enabling data-driven decisions across government offices and ministries.

Planet can provide countrywide, intradaily coverage, which can reduce the need for aircraft or individual resources.


Planet’s cloud-first APIs allow you to build applications quickly that scale across Kenya's various departments.

Supporting Kenya's Bottom Up Economic Transformation Agenda through Monitoring Projects and Using Data-Driven Decision  Making

Kenya's government utilizes aerial images as well as satelite data in a variety of use cases ranging from national security to land use planning. There are several government initiatives and strategic projects including the Joint National Resource Mapping project (JNAMP) which need continuous access to EO data to monitor resource status like forests, water and public land. Planet data can play a vital role in providing national near-daily coverage to support the government's priority areas
