GMES & Africa is a continent-wide initiative on Earth Observation resulting from the longstanding cooperation between Africa and Europe. The first phase was concluded in 2021, and the second phase is led by 8 consortia distributed across the 5 regions of the continent, altogether representing over 120 National and Regional institutions. The second phase continues to focus on the two services: 1) Management of Water and Natural Resources, and Marine and Coastal Areas Resource Management.
ICPAC is the consortium leader in implementing GMES and Africa in the East African Region under the action titled “Monitoring Natural Resources and Food Security in the East African Region”. The overall objective of the GMES & Africa project in the East African region is to promote a more sustainable long-term management of natural resources in the East Africa region by providing decision and policy makers with information and tools needed for the implementation of sustainable environmental policies at regional and national levels.
