The Centre de Suivie Ecologique(CSE), the Regional Centre for Mapping of Resources for Development (RCMRD), and the Southern African Science Service Centre for Climate Change and Adaptive Land Management (SASSCAL) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding(Mou) on the sidelines of the Integrated Management of the GMES & Africa Programme held at Nairobi. Attendees of the programme included GMES heads of Consortia and Project coordinators.
RCMRD was represented by Dr Emmanuel Nkururiza, Dr Cheikh Mbow represented CSE and Dr Jane Olwoch represented SASSCAL. The MoU will provide the framework for collaboration in upscaling and operationalising geo portals to improve on products and services rendered to end users regarding wetlands status maps, change transition maps, statistics, wetland vulnerability index maps and flood monitoring.
The Integrated Management Meeting, taking place in Nairobi, Kenya, started from the 27th of February to the 1st of March 2023. The purpose of the meeting is for leaders to discover the capacities and skills of other regional centres of excellence and get ideas for development. Similarly, RCMRD entered into other agreements, including an MoU with Sahara and Sahel Observatory for cooperation in research, capacity building and sustainability opportunities over the course of the programme.
