Information from satellite imagery is helping to assess the effects of the El Niño weather phenomenon in Zimbabwe and in the process fight hunger in the southern African country.

That's according to Rogerio Bonifacio, Climate Analyst for the World Food Programme (WFP).

WFP is teaming up with the European Space Agency to collect data on climate change in agricultural and pastoral regions.

Janie Cangelosi has the story.
