Crop Storage Location Score: Cassava (Guinea - ~ 500 m)

The raster dataset consists of a 500 m score grid for crop storage location, produced under the scope of FAO’s Hand-in-Hand Initiative, Geographical Information Systems - Multicriteria Decision Analysis for value chain infrastructure location.

The location score is achieved by processing sub-model outputs that characterize logistical factors for selected crop warehouse locations:

• Supply: Cassava. • Demand: Human population density, Major cities population (national and bordering countries). • Infrastructure/accessibility: main transportation infrastructure.

It consists of an arithmetic weighted sum of normalized grids (0 to 100): ("Crop Production" * 0.4) + (“Major Cities Accessibility” * 0.1) + (”Poverty” * 0.1) + ("Human Population Density" * 0.2) + (“Regional Cities Accessibility” * 0.1) +(“Port Accessibility” * 0.1).
