About GMES, and Africa; The ARCSSTE

The Global Monitoring for Environment and Security and Africa (GMES & Africa) initiative is the crystallization of the longstanding cooperation between Africa and Europe in the area of space science & technology, which is one of the key priorities of the long-term EU-Africa Joint Strategy. 
12 Consortia are financed by the Programme under a grant scheme, to develop EO-based applications supporting the decision making processes in the fields of terrestrial (Land and Water) and marine resources (Ocean and Coastal). The African regional centre for Space Science and Technology Education - English - ARCSSTE, leads one of them and deals with Flood management.
