The CEO of the Rwanda Space Agency (RSA), Colonel Francis Ngabo, and the President of Esri, Jack Dangermond, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to establish a collaborative partnership, setting the foundation for promoting geospatial services to drive social-economic development in Rwanda. The momentous event occurred on the sidelines of the 2023 Esri User Conference (EsriUC2023) held in San Diego, United States of America.
The agreement aligns perfectly with RSA’s mission to harness space and GIS (Geographic Information Systems) solutions to foster sustainable and cross-sectoral development in Rwanda. By joining Esri, RSA seeks to leverage advanced geospatial technologies to address various developmental challenges and enhance the nation’s overall well-being.
In addition, this collaboration signifies a significant step forward in leveraging the power of geospatial data and technology for a brighter and more prosperous future for Rwanda. Through this partnership, both organisations are committed to creating impactful initiatives that will have far-reaching benefits across different sectors in the country.
