The AMA-WG is the convening body of GEOGLAM Latino-américa (G-LA) and the AmeriGEOSS Food Security & Sus-tainable Agriculture sister initiatives. Both initiatives focus on strengthening national systems’ monitoring capabilities through Earth observations (EO) as well as on fostering with-in-region international collaboration around research and development and operational implementation of monitoring tools for the main crops types and rangeland/pasture areas in the Americas. While its need was initially acknowledged in a Regional Workshop on Crop Monitoring hosted in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2012, G-LA was formally established in Mexico in 2015 with the recognition that neighboring countries often share practices, challenges, and priorities with respect to food production and supply. G-LA and the Ameri-GEOSS FSSA are voluntary initiatives involving experts from the ministries of agriculture, space agencies, universities, and industry.
