SORA Technology’s business in Africa was featured in the “ASHITANE” project of the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-HABITAT).
In the article introducing Japan’s world-class environmental improvement technologies, Masaki Umeda, Vice CEO of SORA Technology, explains SORA Technology’s LSM* project in Sierra Leone in FY2022 as a project subsidized by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.
*Larval Source Management. A method of malaria control that involves identifying water areas where malaria vector mosquitoes are likely to breed and then spraying insecticides on them before they become adults.
We conduct LSM using our proprietary technology that makes full use of drones and AI, aiming to reduce LSM implementation costs and environmental impact.
