1ST GMES AND AFRICA FORUM: Unlocking the potential of Earth Observation as a key driver of Africa’s sustainable development

The first forum of the GMES & Africa Support Programme is a communication platform that encourages and promotes the exchanging of views among Earth Observation service providers and end-users at the grassroots level in Africa. The first forum is being co-organised by the African Union Commission and the Government of Gabon and will be held from 19th to 23rd November 2018 in Libreville, Gabon.

The theme of the first GMES and Africa Forum is “Unlocking the potential of Earth Observation as a key driver of Africa’s sustainable development”. Satellites are collecting huge volumes of high resolution images in real and/or near real time from space, and these have great potential to be utilised for different applications in the day-to-day activities of people in various sectors.

GAF AG participated in the 23rd MARS Conference in Dublin, Ireland from 27.-29. November 2017.

The 23rd MARS conference provided a valuable platform to exchange and discuss recent developments and experiences regarding the application of remote sensing within the Integrated Administration and Control System (IACS).

Special focus was placed on the future orientation of the European Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). Simultaneously, the European Commission released in Brussels and at the MARS conference the conceptual outline of the future of food and farming within CAP 2020. With simpler rules, a more flexible approach and comprehensive inclusion of Sentinel data, a paradigm shift in the regulations and in the control technology will take place.
