The objective of TWIGA is to provide currently unavailable geo-information on weather, water, and climate for sub-Saharan Africa by enhancing satellite-based geo-data with innovative in situ sensors and developing related information services that answer the needs of African stakeholders and the GEOSS community.

The concept is to create a systematic feedback loop to reciprocally validate in situ measurements and satellite data in one integrated model with over 500 in situ measurement stations using citizen science.
